Indian language patient educational materials on cancer

It breaks my heart when I see what a poor job the Indian government does with educating patients. Sadly, even hospitals are no better - and there is precious little educational materials available in regional languages for Indian patients. This is a crying shame - for a country which prides itself on offering world-class medical facilities - and which is the IT powerhouse of the world.

Fortunately, when I see the initiatives taken by individuals to address this deplorable state of affairs, my faith in humanity is restored.

Please check out the excellent series of patient educational booklets which JASCAP has published in India regional languages . They are generously giving these away free on their website - and my heart is gladdened to see that there are humans who care and can transmute their personal suffering into gifts for
fellow-humans!
