In 2006, the Regional cancer center at MNJ Institute of Oncology (MNJIO), Hyderabad joined hands with International Network for Cancer Treatment and Research (INCTR) and Pallium India to start a palliative care training center.
We had recently reported to you the success of this center in starting a pediatric palliative care fellowship as well as in working with the Government to simplify narcotic regulations in the state and to sanction a full-fledged department of Palliative Medicine at MNJIO.
Now advocacy by MNJIO’s Palliative Care Training Center has had another success! The Government has plans to make palliative care available at District level.
