Access to Pain Relief is a Human Right

2010 November 18

Please Sign the Declaration of Montréal

The International Association for Study of Pain (IASP) had organized a “Global Pain Summit” on 3 October 2010 at Montreal, Canada. The chairman of Pallium India was a member of its steering committee.

The summit had announced “The Montreal Declaration“, which has now been accepted by the IASP council. Essentially, the document declares access to pain relief as a human right, and spells out the components of that right.

You can view the declaration at the IASP website and sign the declaration either as an individual or on behalf of an organization.

Please support the cause by signing it.

It will take only a minute of your time!

    The worst thing one can have in his life-time is pain. We all fear death because we think it is painful. If we can not save someone, we must at least ensure that he/ she does not suffer from pain. Wide availability of narcotics is therefore so important in any part of the world. I hope that the day is not too far off when everyone will have good access to Palliative care, where along with alleviation of many other symptoms, pain management gets the priority.

    PAIN IS NOT A TOPIC FOR PERSONAL PENITENCE hence solace for pain stricken fellow beings is an act of realizing one self.to relieveve them from pain nevr a charity or help but is a liability of those who are free from the same for the time being………………..
