The International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP) has urged the federal government to pay special attention to diabetes and
HIV/AIDS patients by providing drugs that would help in the management of pain suffered by the patients.
In a communiqué issued after a two-day workshop on neuropathic pain management in diabetes and HIV/AIDS that took place at the Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital (ABUTH), Zaria, which was signed by Dr. Luka Samuel and Pharm. Odiba Onalo, respectively, IASP said providing pain relief for patients is part of their fundamental human rights.
The association said pain management for people that are suffering from different diseases is facing many challenges, including lack of expertise in the field of neuropathic pain management and absence of political will to address the problems facing the area.
