Dr Jim Cleary, Director of WHOCC, Madison-Wisconsin, and Dr Stephen Connor, senior executive of Worldwide Palliative Care Alliance (WPCA) worked with us on visits to Government officials at Delhi. We met Shri Desiraju, the new Health Secretary, Dr Jagdish Prasad, the Director General of Health Services and Dr Sudhir Gupta, the Deputy Director General of Health Services who were readily sympathetic to the needs presented by us. And Dr Srivastava, the Secretary of the Medical Council of India as well as Dr. Josephine Littleflower, the nursing officer at the ministry of Health and Family Welfare agreed to do all they can to include palliative care in undergraduate medical and nursing curricula.

Jim and Stephen, we want you to know how grateful we are. Two days of your life is precious; there is no way anyone can give them back to you. Thank you very much.
