photo(4)We at Pallium India’s Trivandrum Institute of Palliative Sciences are pleased to have three doctors and three nurses from Sri Lanka undergoing our six weeks’ certificate course. We thank them for merging so easily into our team.

Over the weekend of 28th and 29th of September, we were also pleased to have two distinguished visitors with us from Sri Lanka, Dr. Lakshmi C. Somatunga, Deputy Director General of Medical Services of Sri Lanka and Ms Neelamani Paranagama, director of Sri Lanka’s National Cancer Control Program. They spent the weekend making home visits with our team, having discussions with the trainees and having planning sessions with us.

Thank you visitors, and thank you Dr Suharsha Kanathigoda for making this visit happen. We are proud to be a part of the great pioneering movement in Sri Lanka.
