Shanti Avedna Sadan, Delhi (Hospice Institution)

Shanti Avedna Sadan is India’s first Hospice, an institution that takes care of the advanced terminally ill Cancer patients. Shanti Avedna Sadan literally translates to ‘Peace in the absence of pain’ and the organization aims to provide free palliative care to all, irrespective of community caste, creed or status. 

VBA team feels blessed to have visited Shanti Avedna Sadan located in New Delhi, as part of its mission-mode program, Viksit Bharat Abhiyan 2047. The visit made the team understand the importance of having such an institution, the policy support that such premier organizations are devoid of and the need for a Hospice Act.
