6.3 Dr. Raj, founder of Pallium India

I’m thrilled and honored to have hosted a special Friday edition of the series with Dr. Rajagopal, the director of Trivandrum Institute of Palliative Science, the WHO Collaborating Center at Trivandrum, and the founder-chairman of “Pallium India”. He has advocated for the relief of suffering for the duration of his career. The international organization “Human Rights Watch” honored him with the Alison Des Forges Award in Los Angeles in November 2014.
In 2017, a documentary film titled “Hippocratic: 18 experiments in gently shaking the world” based on Dr. Rajagopal’s contributions to palliative care was released by Moonshine Agency, Australia. In 2018, Dr. Rajagopal was honored with Padma Shri, the third-highest civilian award given annually by the Republic of India. He is also the author of “Walk with the Weary.” Click on the above picture to watch the lecture!
