Approximately one million people in India experience cancer pain every year. 1 As in many developing countries, it is typical that cancer is diagnosed in the late stages, when pain is prevalent and often severe. 2 Severe pain destroys a person’s quality of life and dignity. Severe pain also affects families, neighbors, and the community: a painful death leaves an indelible mark, especially in India, where the person with cancer is often cared for in the community and at home. 1,3
