Pallium India Inc

About Us

Who are we?

Pallium India Inc. is a group of Indian-Americans and palliative care and oncology clinicians who have formed a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, charitable organization to support the crucial work of Pallium India in reducing serious health-related suffering and isolation of millions in India with serious health conditions. We welcome everyone and hope you will join us.
Dr Rajagopal visits Joseph, 83, in Arumana hospital, Trivandrum, Kerala. Joseph has hemiplegia (paralysis on one side of the body) and lives in a remote area in the state making travel to and from health services for the care that he needs particularly difficult. For the last 15 days, he has struggled to take in anything other than fluids and his wife Lakshmi requires help from Pallium to help Joseph cope with the pain and other symptoms including constipation and bedsores.

We support Pallium India by:

  • Connecting Indians in the diaspora with palliative care programs for their family and friends in India who are suffering from pain or a serious illness or health condition.
  • Supporting Pallium India staff in educational, research and clinical efforts.
  • Joining the global effort to integrate palliative care in all settings.

Our Vision

Everyone in India will have access to quality palliative care integrated into all healthcare settings.

Our Mission

To engage the palliative care community and people of Indian heritage in the U.S., to support Pallium India in meeting the compelling need for palliative care in India.
