Pain and Palliative care
Every Child's Right to Painless Days
The World Health Organization defines palliative care for children as "the active total care of the child’s body, mind and spirit, and also involves giving support to the family. Optimally, this care begins when a life-threatening illness or condition is diagnosed and continues regardless of whether or not a child receives treatment directed at the underlying illness.”

About Us And Our Work
IAP Pain and Palliative Care era in India was first initiated in 2015 and the body was then recognized by central IAP in Feb, 2017. The group is aimed at sensitizing and training of pediatricians, doctors, medical and para-medical staff. So far so much has been done to create awareness in pain management and palliative care in children. First conference of pain and palliative care was held in 2016 in the month of October. Since then many workshops and CMEs have been held in India which have aided in uplifting the knowledge and perception about palliative care in India.
Our Goals and objectives

We also aim to establish specialized Training center in various parts of the country, so that the knowledge of palliative care could be wide spread to each and everyone..
