We bring you good news!

Palliative care reaches yet another virgin state in India.

Under the dynamic leadership of Dr Gautam Majumdar in Agartala in the state of Tripura, the Regional Cancer Center now has palliative care.

It is one of the eight palliative care centers that Pallium India has had the privilege of catalyzing in the last few years in eight different North and North-East Indian states.

Agartala is one of the projects funded jointly by Savitri Waney Trust, Farida and Yusuf Hamied Foundation and Bruce Davis Trust.

A doctor-nurse team, Ms Rita Saha (nurse) and Dr Batan Janapathy underwent Six Weeks’ Certificate Course at TIPS, Trivandrum. Within one month of finishing the training program, they have already started home visits!

Congratulations, Dr Majumdar, Dr Janapthy and Ms Saha.
