    I highly appreciate Pallium India for sharing this relevant post for us. I congratulate Dr Cherian Varghese on his elaborate write-up which will enrich my knowledge.In developing country like India access to Palliative Care for Non Communicable Disease, life threatening disease, shows a poor picture mainly due to want of funding. It is true that Palliative Care is a prime need to the terminal cancer patients and caregivers alongwith positive counseling to have better quality of life and dignified death peacefully. Here’s my humble appeal to the government of different countries globally to go through the report and act accordingly.

  2. Is it possible to download this report? it is very helpful for advocacy to Governments.

    Gratitude to Pallium for this and other world wide news.
