Kosish Hospice

This pioneer rural palliative care service in the tribal state of Jharkhand & West Bengal in India is providing much needed palliative care services to the elderly and terminally ill of those states. The hospice, KOSISH, which is a registered NGO, is the first palliative care NGO in Jharkhand to care for such patients. Please visit the website www.kosishthehospice.webs.com to find out more about their wonderful work.


This service is need of funding partners to sustain their work. Perhaps linking with a community service in Australia might be a way to help here. If you are interested, please contact APLI or Kosish directly to explore how you might set up a link here.

Hippocratic film applauded across Australia

Hippocratic Film Header

With only one city remaining in the Australian launch of the biographical documentary, Hippocratic, it is clear that the film has had great impact here.

One important feature has been the opportunity for Q&A after the movie, where audience members have a chance to delve deeper into the issues raised in the film, such as trying to understand the distressing ongoing shortage of morphine, an essential medication in pain management, a shortage that affects over 80% of the world’s population.

This issue alone should galvanise us to action, to demand change and accountability. However, long time advocates in this field know only too well how difficult it is to bring about change and improvements here.

Films such as Hippocratic are too few and APLI thanks Moonshine Movies for their commitment to contributing to change in a creative and positive way.
