Honorable Health Minister of Kerala, V. S. Sivakumar inaugurates Pallium India’s new Information Centre
Info Centre InaugurationAt 9.30 AM on 29 Aug, 2014, at Pallium India premises in Trivandrum, Kerala’s Honorable Health Minister, Shri V S Sivakumar formally inaugurated Pallium India’s new information centre, which had been on a trial run for the last few weeks. This information centre will:
  • Provide information to patients and families about available palliative care facilities in the country
  • Provide advice on management (though prescriptions will not be given through the information centre; we can provide advice based on existing prescriptions)
  • Provide advice on psycho-socio-spiritual issues
  • Provide advice to palliative care professionals and volunteers on management of patients and families (we have an expert group of consultants whom we can turn to when we do not have answers ourselves)
  • Provide palliative care education to other palliative care centres through electronic media
Inaugurating the centre, the Honorable Minister said that though Kerala has made tremendous advances in the field of palliative care, the coverage and quality of care can improve only if the Government system works hand in hand with non-government organizations like Pallium India. He also offered all possible support to Pallium India’s activities in future.
For contacting the Information centre, please write to: or call +91 9746745497 (from 9AM to 12 noon).
