Meet Mr Amal Kumar, the one person in Bihar who can scoop away a huge burden of pain and suffering in the state of Bihar.
On the 13th and 14th of December 2018, Pallium India took part in a series of meetings at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Patna and at the Regional Cancer Centre (RCC). One major item on the agenda was an opioid availability meeting.
We were overjoyed to find the drug controller Mr Amal Kumar so positive. He was very clear about being supportive of implementation of the new amended rules. It is now up to the medical fraternity to create enough palliative care services so as to make a difference.
Thank you Mr Amal Kumar and all friends at AIIMS and at RCC, Patna.
