Dr Ann Thyle, who directs Emmanuel Hospital Association’s palliative care program writes to say that EHA has formally started its activities at Lalitpur.

Operating since mid-March, the project is run by Leela Pradhan, an experienced community nurse, as Home Care Coordinator and Carol Motuz as Administration and Training Coordinator.

Lalitpur is in Uttar Pradesh, the most populous state in India. It houses 2.9% of the world’s population (16% of India’s population). It has negligible palliative care.

We are glad to report that Pallium India’s collaborative project with SGPGIMS in Lucknow- Pallcare Project, has taken off recently.

It is indeed heartening to see the progress in the state.

Congratulations and best wishes, Dr Ann Thyle and team!
