To catalyze the development of effective pain relief and quality palliative care services and their integration in health care across India through delivery of services, education, building capacities, policy, research, advocacy and information.
Work and Achievements
Palliative care involves improving the quality of life of people with life-limiting or disabling diseases, by treating pain and other symptoms and by providing emotional, social and spiritual support. This is what we attempt to do in Pallium India’s flagship, Trivandrum Institute of Palliative Sciences (TIPS) in Trivandrum, Kerala. This includes rehabilitation of patients and families by helping them to earn a livelihood again and by ensuring that children in those families continue their education.
Elsewhere, Pallium India identifies committed individuals and institutions and support them to develop quality palliative care services.
Pallium India also works with Central and State Governments for
- Integrating palliative care into the Health Care System
- Facilitating palliative care education and improving access to essential and affordable medicines like morphine and other opioids
- Conducting need-based research, and disseminating information
