The AIC is an industry association composed of leading Internet and technology companies.

First and foremost, we commend the Government of India’s initiative on progressing the National Digital Health Ecosystem. We believe this is indeed a first step in realising the “Security and Privacy by Design” for the protection of individuals’ data privacy. It certainly acts as a guidance document across the NDHE and sets out the minimum standard for data privacy protection that should be followed across the board in order to ensure compliance with relevant and applicable laws, rules and regulations.
