Equality NC Foundation was founded in 1979 under the name North Carolina Human Rights Fund (NCHRF), an education and charitable organization established to promote and defend the human rights and civil liberties of lesbians and gay men in North Carolina. In its infancy NCHRF worked to document antigay violence, repeal the Crime Against Nature law, provide legal aid to gays and lesbians, and helped fund the first NC Pride marches. The Foundation has expanded its programs to educate all residents of North Carolina about LGBT issues.

The report tells about development of the field of palliative care. How this direction of the medicine has been evolving in Georgia over 12 years. What are international best practices and who is taking care to support this field. The spot unfolds the drama of palliative patient Maka Makharashvili and his jailed husband, who was granted free legal aid and had an opportunity to meet each other at the final stage of Maka’s life.
Opening remark of the reporter: “A free legal service is only one small component of palliative care. The new field appeared in the Georgian health care system 12 years ago. The initiative belongs to the Open Society Georgia Foundation. Palliative care implies care for people suffering with terminal illnesses, for whom pain relief is the only alternative the medicine can offer”.
