Everyone facing a serious illness will at some point in time need supportive care in addition to treatment for their condition. This helps the patient and their family to cope with their condition– from pre-diagnosis, through diagnosis and treatment, to cure, continuing illness or death. It helps the patient to maximise the benefits of treatment and to have the best quality of life as is possible with the effects of the disease.
Even today, Palliative Care reaches only about 1% of the population in India. It is our endeavour to ensure that good quality Palliative care is available to more people that require the same.
