At a side event of the World Health Assembly on 21 May 2014, Pallium India’s consultant Dr Nandini Vallath was one of the participants at a panel discussion, promoting the historic resolution by the World Health Assembly due to come up on the 22nd of May.

Dr Nandini writes from Geneva:
The Director General of Health Services of India, Dr Jagdish Prasad was very supportive and participated in the discussion today during the presentation by India on “Recent efforts in Palliative care” at the World health assembly side-event. He made important comments which stated the definite commitment by the government on implementing the PC program effectively, across the country. The audience, which comprised of government and NGO representatives from more than 30 countries, was also pleasantly surprised at the initiatives that India has already taken.
