  2. Short course intensive training programs for junior researchers of the developing and underdeveloped countries to impart basic knowledge on clinical trials and motivate to start a research oriented profession.

    Research in the developing world, falls back nearly by ten years in most areas of science and health when compared to that of developed countries. While research forms the backbone of advancements in areas relevant to a specific country; developing and underdeveloped countries have provided it a very low priority. Because of this the deficiencies and shortcomings, which existed 50 years ago in several parts of the world, are still there though in a less intensity.

    IRPC has initiated steps to co-ordinate research and developmental programs for the young scientists in the developing and underdeveloped countries with the help of teaching institutions in Europe, Australia and America.

  3. Organizing palliative care in the developing and underdeveloped countries.

    Palliative care is the active total care of patients whose disease is not responsive to curative treatment. Control of pain, of other symptoms, and of psychological, social and spiritual problems is paramount. The goal of palliative care is achievement of the best possible quality of life for patients and their families. Many aspects of palliative care are also applicable earlier in the course of the illness, in conjunction with anticancer treatment. Palliative care:

    • affirms life and regards dying as a normal process;
    • neither hastens nor postpones death;
    • provides relief from pain and other distressing symptoms;
    • integrates the psychological and spiritual aspects of patient care;
    • offers a support system to help patients live as actively as possible until death;
    • offers a support system to help the family cope during the patient's illness and in their own bereavement.

    In the past pain control and palliative care was considered as an unimportant and neglected area. In recent years, palliative care has become established in an increasing number of countries and is now a recognized medical specialty in the United Kingdom. Academic posts have been established in several countries, notably Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom. There are now several national associations for palliative care and journals devoted to the subject.

    The philosophy of hospice gained much popularity in the western world while home care became the practical solution in the developing countries. USA and UK have started many advanced centers for training and teaching palliative care to the health care professionals. Subsequently this has been included in the medical curriculum as well. Thus palliative care gained popularity in the developed as well as developing countries. Unfortunately, teaching and training centers for palliative care are lacking in many countries.

    IRPC will act as a co-ordinating organization to introduce Palliative Care in the underdeveloped and developing countries by connecting palliative care training centers in Europe and America with the medical schools and hospitals in Asia, Africa and the Pacific.

  4. Publications and mass communication

    International Research Promotion Council has already started a few international journals to disseminate information to the people of thirdworld countries at a low cost compared to that of similar publications from the developed countries. IRPC has already made collaborations with leading Universities and organizations like International Program of Psycho-Social Health Research (IPP-SHR) – Australia, Gunma University-Japan, Kuwait Cancer Control Center-Kuwait, etc. to fulfill this noble vision. We are looking forward for similar collaborations in future from other Universities and institutions in the world.

  5. CONSULTANCY SERVICES

    Members of IRPC is committed to provide tailor made consultancy services in highly sophisticated area in medicine and health care delivery system for its member institutions.

  6. TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER AND ACADEMIC EXCHANGE PROGRAMS

  8. TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS

    Institutions in developing and under-developed countries are lacking modern facilities in research, clinical and diagnostic services. IRPC will assist such institutions to identify other suitable institutions and agencies, which are willing to help them. IRPC will also help the staff members to under go refresher courses, developmental activities and short course training programs.

  9. ASSISTANCE TO DOCTORS AND SCIENTISTS ON SABBATICAL LEAVE

    IRPC shall assist doctors and scientists of developed countries to effectively utilize their sabbatical leave by identifying suitable institutions and research areas in different parts of the world.

  10. STARTING NEW INSTITUTIONS, NEW PROGRAMS, NEW DEPARTMENTS IN EXISTING INSTITUTIONS

    IRPC and its members shall give expert services to start new institutions, new research programs and new departments or divisions in existing institutions in any part of the world. Preference will be given to developing and underdeveloped countries.
