Access to pain relief is India’s ethical obligation: Indian journal of medical ethics
2015 March 24
“India has yet to enhance its large population’s chances of a pain-free or pain-controlled life when they have a severe, pain-inflicting illness, and enable those with terminal illnessesto pass away in a pain-controlled, dignified manner”, so says Sunita Bandewar, an independent researcher in global health, bioethics and programme evaluation. You can read her review on the pain problem in India, the palliative care movement of Kerala and the NDPS Act amendment of 2014 in the Indian Journal of Medical Ethics Online.
Thank you Dr Bandewar, for being a voice for the voiceless.
