National Technical Guidelines on Anti-Retroviral Therapy (ART) Oct 2018 include chapter on Palliative Care
Professor Dinesh Kumar, our collaborator from Anand, Gujarat, writes:
National Technical Guidelines on ART_October 2018 have been released recently. The guidelines have a dedicated chapter [Section 2, Chapter 12, 14 pages] dedicated to palliative care. This indicates increasing recognition for palliative care in the framework of existing National programmes. This will help in making palliative care services more accessible to HIV positive individual and families. It will contribute to integrating Palliative care in the healthcare system. Hope other programmes will also follow the lead.
