In the presence of Archbishop Mons. Vincenzo Paglia and Dott.ssa Nunziata Comoretto from the Vatican, the Catholic Health Association of India (CHAI) at its National Health Convention in Kakkanad, Kochi, declared unequivocally that palliative care is the right of every person who needs it and that hospitals have a duty to provide it.

CHAI and Pallium India have signed a memorandum of understanding to work together to integrate palliative care into CHAI’s health care network.
Pallium India thanks Rev Fr Dr Mathew Abraham, director general of CHAI and his team for this opportunity to work with CHAI.
