Dr M. R. Rajagopal writes from Pathanamthitta:

Kerala-PathanamthittaIt was invigorating to be part of a palliative care meet of doctors in government service at Pathanamthitta district in Kerala. This was the first district to spread palliative care to every single panchayat in it.

It was reassuring that several doctors in the district have had palliative care training and what is more, so many others are interested.

And it was so good to hear that the palliative care system was instrumental in getting the Government’s pension system to reach more than 1200 of the needy.

District panchayat president Ms Annapoorna Devi, advocate Satheesh Chathankari, DMO Dr Gracy, Dy DMO Dr Anitha, DPM Dr Saiju, district coordinator Mr Shan Ramesh Gopan, we congratulate you on all your achievements.

True; there are problems; there would be. They are there to be overcome, are they not? Best wishes!
