Palliative Care Centres in Sri Lanka

Palliative care is all about giving special medical support to those dealing with serious illnesses by treating the symptoms and not the underlying cause. In Sri Lanka, there’s a growing need for this care because more and more people are facing serious diseases as the population continues to grow.
