CNN-IBN Indian of the Year award recognizes the Indians whose contribution to the country in a calendar year has strengthened the foundation of the society and has helped build ‘Brand India’ in the process.
Dr Rajagopal’s initiatives to remove regulatory barriers in availability of oral morphine for pain relief have contributed to simplification of narcotic regulations in 17 of India’s 28 states and to the amendment of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act of India.
He was honoured by Human Rights Watch in November 2014 with the Alison Des Forges award for “Extraordinary activism in promoting the notion that denial of pain relief is a violation of human rights.”
