Thank you, Mr Excise Commissioner!
Mr Piyush Gupta, Secretary of Cancer Aid Society, has worked hard in Uttar Pradesh (U.P.) and neighboring states for palliative care advocacy.
Most of the few palliative care services in Uttar Pradesh have been catalysed by his activity, and his interactions with the U.P. Government for improved opioid availability have also been very fruitful.
Piyush writes to inform us that Mr. M.K. Gupta, Excise Commissioner of U.P., has issued a circular to concerned officials in the state to cooperate in the matter of licensing medical institutions for morphine.
Those in U.P. can download the circular (in Hindi) below; you may need it to support an application for morphine licensing:
