Minister for health and social justice minister KK Shailaja informed the legislative assembly on Wednesday that Kerala will achieve ‘total palliative care delivery’ in 2018 and become the first state to accomplish this rare feat in India. She added that Kerala is already a model state in the country in the field of palliative care.
“The government is considering extension of this service to everyone and it will be recruiting one physiotherapist and a nurse each at 232 community health centres (CHCs) on contract basis,” she said.
