Roselyne Bachelot-Narquin, generally known as Roselyne Bachelot (born 24 December 1946 in Nevers, Nièvre), is a French politician and a member of the Union for a Popular Movement, which is part of the European People's Party

She is currently the French Minister for Health and Sport.

Since French ministers cannot be members of Parliament, she has been forced to give up her seat as Member of the European Parliament for the west of France. She used to sit on the European Parliament's Committee on Employment and Social Affairs. She also was a substitute on the Committee on Industry, Research and Energy, a member of the delegation for relations with the Palestinian Legislative Council, and a substitute for the delegation for relations with Israel.

In 2009, she declared herself to be shocked by statements of Pope Benedict XVI on the futility of condoms in AIDS prevention.[1] In March 2009, she changed the legal age to purchase alcohol in France from 16 to 18.[2]
