Cancer pain & palliative care in India

September 3, 2006 3:26am CST
Dear Sir / Madam, SSM Public Charitable Trust, established 4 years ago, is a non profit organization, providing cancer pain relief and palliative care to the community. India has a large population of cancer patients and 1 million new cases of cancer are diagnosed every year. Unfortunately most of them report late and are in their advanced stage. India lacks adequate cancer pain and palliative care service, though cancer treatment is much better. We are using the facilities of Samvedana Pain Hospital (, located in the NCR Delhi, to carry out pain & palliative care. Shall be grateful for assistance / support to carry out our free public education/awareness programmes, early detection camps, home care, and cancer pain management & palliative care etc. We have large professional team to provide these services without profit motive. Samvedana Pain Hospital (Listed #1 in web search on pain hospital) is already providing it's premises for consultations, integrated cancer pain and palliative care management (Medications, interventional pain therapies, complementary & alternative therapies in an integrated fashion) and willing to dedicate a ward for palliative care as in-patients. Best regards Dr K J Choudhury, MD,MNAMS,PhD,FWACS Trustee
