Challenge

Palliative Care seeks to improve the quality of life of people with advanced life threatening illness. It involves physical and psychosocial support to the patient and the family to cope with illness and bereavement. Every year, about 200,000 people in Telangana &Andhra Pradesh are diagnosed to have cancer. 70% are diagnosed as having advanced cancer and need pain relief and palliative care. Less than 1% has access to palliative care or a pain relief program. We are here to make a difference.

Solution

We hope to improve the access to palliative care with all our activities for the needy: 1. Home Care- Strengthening the existing home care program and improving access by expansion of the current program with more number of vans to cover the population and area in the city of Hyderabad & Secunderabad. 2. Hospice Care -To increase the bed strength to 50 to meet the need 3. Rural outreach- Strengthening the existing program in 12 villages and expansion to 30 villages.

Long-Term Impact

In home care program we see around 2000 patient visits in a year. In hospice program we admit about 500 patients for end of life care in one year. In the community outreach program 65 patients are seen in a month. Improve the care for patients living with terminal illnesses, access to pain relief, and better access to end of life care. Increase in number of people living with non-communicable diseases is increasing every year and we are trying to strengthen our activities to provide better care.
