Vehicle for Patient Transport, India

The NGO CanSupport runs India’s largest free homebased palliative care programme, out-patient clinics, day care centers and training programmes. CanSupport is a free of charge outpatient Pain & Palliative Care Clinic for underserved patients who are undergoing cancer treatment at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) and Safdarjung Hospital. It provides a full spectrum of medical, nutritional, and psychosocial support activities that enables patients to remain motivated through their treatments and reintegration back into normal lives. The clinic enables an early intervention in the cancer trajectory and a continuity of care enabling improved outcomes for about 1,000 patients plus their family caregivers annually. BASAID will support
the purchase of a vehicle to ferry patients from their treating hospital to the CanSupport Clinic and back. The project
takes place in the South District of New Delhi.
