An Example of an Article in the Newsflash:

Amendment of Narcotic Regulation in Andhra Pradesh

A Milestone in the Palliative Care Movement in India

Andhra Pradesh recently became the 14th state of India to amend and simplify its narcotic regulations.

This is the consequence of about 10 years of efforts, following the establishment of a palliative care training center at the MNJ Institute of Oncology (MNJIO) as a joint initiative of MNJIO, the International Network for Cancer Treatment and Research (INCTR), Pallium India, and the American Cancer Society.

The amendment means that all palliative care centers in Andhra Pradesh can get the required morphine without the complicated licensing process and that the Drugs Controller is the only agency involved in the process.
