Chai has developed its own model of holistic Palliative Care called "Pratyasha" (ray of hope) that helps in increasing a massive spread in Palliative Care availability, with a special emphasis in rural Palliative Care. The Pratyasha Programme envisages to upgrade the skills of sisters/doctors/nurses/social workers, with a whole person approach, suitable to the multi-religious and cultural context of India.
