The WHO data on cancer pain, reports that 45 — 100% of pa¬tients witli cancer, experience some degree of pain during the course of their disease, ranging from mere discomfort to unbearable excruciating pain. We are convinced that in this last decade of the twentieth century not much improvement is going to be made in the PREVENTION, DIAGNOSIS and CURATIVE therapy of cancer, at least not in the developing countries. On the other hand, we are positive that in PALLIATIVE therapy, especially the management of pain, there should be no reason why a gap should exist between developed and developing countries. Pain relieving drugs and techniques are readily available almost anywhere in the world. The only thing needed is AWARENESS that approximately 90 % of cancer pain, can be succesfully managed. Our experience at the Pulmonary ward of the Dr.Soetomo Gener¬al Hospital during the past 6 months has taught us that the STEPWISE PAIN APPROACH of the WHO is easily adaptable to local conditions and convenient to use.
