Eric Lewis Krakauer, M.D., PH.D., has been invited by the Ministry of Health of Tajikistan and the Royal Dutch Tuberculosis Society (KNCV) to teach a course in July: "Palliative Care for Patients with Difficult-to-Treat Tuberculosis" in Dushanbe, Tajikistan.
Dr. Krakauer continues to work as a faculty member of the International Pain Policy Fellowship by teaching at the meeting in Entebbe, Uganda, of the first all-African cohort of fellows. The International Pain Policy Fellowship trains and mentors pain relief advocates and Ministry of Health officials from low- and middle-income countries to overcome the barriers to opioid pain medicine accessibility in their home countries and thereby to help reduce the huge global inequity in access to pain relief. Dr. Krakauer currently serves as faculty mentor for African Pain Policy fellow, Dr. Christian Ntizimira of Rwanda.
In August, Dr. Krakauer will be in Vietnam to open the third iteration of the Vietnam Fellowship Program in Palliative Medicine. Founded by Dr. Krakauer in collaboration with the Ministry of Health of Vietnam and currently funded by the Atlantic Philanthropies, the Fellowship is a partnership between the Ho Chi Minh City Cancer Hospital, the Ho Chi Minh City University of Medicine and Pharmacy, and other hospitals in Ho Chi Minh City, and the International Program of the Harvard Medical School Center for Palliative Care. The Fellowship is designed to prepare clinical and academic leaders in Palliative medicine for Vietnam.
