In 2006, the International Network for Cancer Treatment and Research (INCTR), American Cancer Society, Pallium India and MNJ Institute of Oncology (MNJIO) in Hyderabad joined hands to create a Palliative Care Training Institute at MNJIO.

The Institute made remarkable progress including amendment of the narcotic regulations of the state of Andhra Pradesh and starting of a Pediatric Palliative Care Fellowship course.

And, as one more giant step forward, they have now been successful in working with the Government of Andhra Pradesh which created a full-fledged Department of Palliative Medicine at MNJIO.

This is the sort of thing that we all have always wanted – integration of Palliative Care into the Government’s health care system.

Congratulations, MNJ team and partners!
