Why does ABDM allow a user to have multiple ABHA or Health IDs

User’s privacy is very important for ABDM, which believes that users are rightful owners of their data, and can make rational decisions associated with its use. As healthcare is a sensitive subject, ABDM does not want to restrict users and enable them to link different sets of health data with different ABHA or Health IDs. For instance, if a user wishes to use a separate ABHA to access data related to their sexual history, ABDM will allow this completely in such a case. However, to establish a better continuum of care, it is recommended to create & use only one ABHA or Health ID.
