Opioid availability workshop in Delhi

2018 February 23

Despite the amendment of the NDPS Act of India in 2014, progress has been slow in terms of improvement in access to opioids for those who need it.

Thank you, International Association for Hospice and Palliative Care (IAHPC) for coming to help and organising a two-day workshop on opioid access at All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi on 21 and 22 February, 2018. It was a great idea to bring together Government officials and palliative care activists from several states.

And thank you, WHO (India) for supporting it.

Liliana De Lima, IAHPC Executive Director, speaking at the Opioid Workshop
