Neighbourhood networks in palliative care

Neighbourhood networks in palliative care

We are doing research into the spread of Neighbourhood Networks in Palliative Care (NNPC) as part of our Wellcome Trust funded project Global Interventions at the End of Life.

This model of community participation in palliative care was initiated in Kerala in the late 1990s. It has now spread to other locations in India and to other countries.

We aim to examine the concepts behind this model, and the challenges of transferring the model to other contexts.
