What kind of a system do we have to live with, in which, a compassionate doctor does not have access to the cheap medicine produced within the country, but has to prepare and use a dangerous cocktail to relieve someone’s pain?

Please read the blog by Dr Hannah Fox, a dedicated doctor who volunteered for a whole year in Kolkata in India.

Hannah closes her blog by quoting Dr Sankha Mitra, the founder of East India Palliative Care (EIPC):

“The poor die in agony in neglect, the middle class die in agony in ignorance and the rich die in agony on a ventilator. No one gets a dignified and pain-free death.”
