Health Ministry, AIIMS to set up National Death Registry
28 December 2016 Current Affairs: The Union Health Ministry in collaboration with All India Institute Of Medical Science (AIIMS) will set up a National Death Registry encompassing data about deaths and their causes in all the hospitals across the country. The announcement was made on 27 December 2016.

Highlights of the National Death Registry :  The aim behind setting up of this registry is to have a nationwide database about the causes of deaths occurring in hospitals in various regions of India.
