Autonomy and Agency: An Overview of the Indian Healthcare
since the individual human subject became the epicenter of moral deliberations,
patient autonomy acquired primacy over the other bioethics principles like
beneficence, non-maleficence and justice. But such individualism does not match
with the cultural values of many non-Western
like India, where group identities acquire primacy over individual identity.

the context of such a scenario.For more information, please contact: Emera Bridger, email@example.com
