  e belief that pain treatment is a human right has been 
accepted by many for a long time, but in 2004 the state-
ment that “the relief of pain should be a human right” 
was felt to be of suffi
  cient importance for it to be pub-
lished following the launch of the fi rst Global Campaign 
Against Pain in Geneva in 2004 by the International 
Association of Pain (IASP), the European Federation 
of Chapters of the IASP (EFIC), and the World Health 
Organization (WHO). Unfortunately, however, a large 
number of those who suff er pain, and especially the 
people of developing countries, do not receive treat-
ment for acute and, more especially, chronic pain.
 ere are various reasons for this problem, 
which include a lack of adequately trained health pro-
fessionals, the unavailability of drugs, especially opi-
oids, and a fear of using opioids because there is an 
erroneous belief that inevitably the use of these drugs 
will cause addiction. Th
 e fi rst major step in improv-
ing services for pain patients is to provide an educated 
workforce in developing countries—not only doctors 
and nurses, but district offi
  cers and other health work-
ers. A survey by IASP in 2007 revealed that among its 
members in developing countries, very few believed 
they had received an adequate education in the under-
standing and management of pain as undergraduates. 
In most regions of the world, less than half had been 
trained in pain management, even though it was a sig-
nifi cant part of their daily work. It is not surprising, 
therefore, that 91% said that lack of education was the 
main barrier to good pain management in their part of 
the world.
It is clear that in many developing countries, re-
lief of pain is not a priority, and that concern with infec-
tious diseases such as malaria, tuberculosis, and above 
all HIV/AIDS takes precedence. In fact, 75% of those 
who responded to the IASP survey considered a lack of 
government priorities for pain management as the sec-
ond most common barrier to good treatment. Almost as 
many reported that a fear of addiction to opioids among 
doctors, nurses, and health providers was a barrier to 
the availability and use of those drugs, although, in fact, 
such fear is primarily a consequence of poor education.
  e production of this manual is timely because 
it will fi ll a major gap in the knowledge of those who 
deal with people in pain in developing countries. It cov-
ers the basic science of pain, and perhaps uniquely, the 
rationale for the use of natural medicines. It also pro-
vides background knowledge and advice on the man-
agement of the major painful disorders occurring in de-
veloping countries, including the two major scourges of 
the present time—cancer and HIV/AIDS.
  is is a book that should be available to all 
who are responsible for providing treatment for pain, 
whether acute or chronic, and whether they work in 
cities, towns, or in a much more rural settings, because 
all will fi nd it an invaluable aid to their practice.
Professor Sir Michael Bond
Glasgow, Scotland
August 2009

Pain is widely undertreated, causing suff ering and fi -
nancial loss to individuals and to society. It is believed 
that health care of all patients should include assess-
ment of pain and its impact on the patient, specifi c ef-
forts by health care professionals to control pain, and 
the development of programs to generate experts in 
pain management. Additionally, clinical and basic sci-
ence research is to be encouraged to provide better 
care in the future. Th
  e aim of these eff orts is to ensure 
that pain control receives high priority in the health 
care system.
 is book, Guide to Pain Management in Low-
Resource Settings, is intended to encourage research 
on pain mechanisms and pain syndromes and help 
improve the management of patients with acute and 
chronic pain by bringing together basic scientists, phy-
sicians, and other health professionals of various disci-
plines and backgrounds who have an interest in pain.
 e target audience is basic research and preclinical 
staff , surgical and internal medicine practitioners of all 
disciplines, anesthetists and anesthesiologists, all ad-
vanced nursing staff , and local health care workers in 
district and mission hospitals, as well as medical and 
nursing students.
In low-resource settings, many health care 
workers have little or no access to basic, practical in-
formation. Indeed, many have come to rely on obser-
vation, on advice from colleagues, and on building 
experience empirically through their own treatment 
successes and failures. Th
  e disparity of theoretical and 
practical availability of information is due to several 
factors, including unequal distribution of Internet ac-
cess, and also a failure of international development 
policies and initiatives, which have tended to focus 
on innovative approaches for higher-level health pro-
fessionals and researchers while ignoring, relatively 
speaking, other approaches that remain essential for 
the vast majority of primary and district health work-
ers. Th
 e information poverty of health workers in 
low-resource settings is exacerbating what is clearly a 
public health emergency. Primary and district health 
workers should be at the center of eff orts to address 
this crisis. Th
  e availability of health information may 
provide confi dence in clinical decision-making, im-
proving practical skills and attitudes to care.
Information on pain and pain management is 
crucial. All health care workers will see patients suf-
fering from pain. Pain is the main reason for seeking 
medical help. Th
  us, any physician, nurse, or other clini-
cal worker needs to have basic knowledge about the 
pathophysiology of pain and should be able to use at 
least simple fi rst-line treatments. Unlike “special pain 
management,” which should be reserved for specialist 
physicians with specifi c postgraduate training in com-
plex pain syndromes, knowledge of “general pain man-
agement” is a must for all other health care workers to 
prepare them for the majority of patients in pain with 
common pain syndromes.
  e editors intend that with the help of this 
Guide the reader will be know how to identify patients 
suff ering from pain, understand the nature of pain and 
its infl uence on the patient’s life, know the methods of 
analgesia that can provide eff ective pain management 
for most patients, know how to apply those methods 
and how to classify them in graduated schemes in-
cluding nonpharmacological approaches, and know 
how to evaluate the effi
  ciency of pain management. 
  e main focus of the Guide is to address the follow-
ing four pain syndromes: acute post-traumatic post-
operative pain, cancer pain, neuropathic pain, and 
chronic noncancer pain.
  e editors understand the barriers and future 
needs regarding good pain management. Th
 ese barriers 
include lack of pain education and a lack of emphasis 
on pain management and pain research. In addition, 
when pain management does feature in government 
health priorities, there are fears of opioid addiction, 
the high cost of certain drugs, and in some cases, poor 
patient compliance. In developing countries, the avail-
able resources for health care understandably focus on 
the prevention and treatment of “killer” diseases. Yet 
most such disease conditions are accompanied by un-
relieved pain, which is why pain control matters in the 
developing world, according to Prof. Sir Michael Bond. 
 e WHO recommends that “since in most parts of 
the world, the majority of cancer patients present with 

advanced disease … the only realistic treatment option 
is pain relief and palliative care.” Due to the limited re-
sources for health care, the WHO further proposes that 
in the future, palliative instead of curative approaches to 
treatment should be encouraged.
However, it is a sad reality that the medicines 
that are essential for relieving pain often are not avail-
able or accessible. Th
  ere are numerous reports, some of 
them published in major medical and science journals, 
about the defi cits of adequate pain management, pre-
dominantly in developing countries in all regions of the 
world. It is sincerely believed that with relatively minor 
input (referring not to eff orts to change the situation 
but to the availability of essential drugs and techniques), 
the quality of analgesic treatment for cancer and HIV/
AIDS patients in low-resource countries might be con-
siderably improved, as documented by local initiatives 
around the world. Th
  e IASP has recently produced an 
atlas of pain training and pain facilities in developing 
countries. More information on this atlas can be found 
on the IASP website (
For the pain specialist in developed countries, 
plenty of detailed information is available, but for the 
non-pain specialist and other health care providers, in-
cluding nurses and clinical staff  in many other regions 
of the world, who have to deal with patients in pain, 
there is a lack of a basic guide or manual on pain mech-
anisms, management, and treatment rationales. Th
 is is 
of particular concern in areas of the world where, out-
side the main urban areas, there is no access to infor-
mation about pain etiology or management and no ac-
cess to a pain specialist. 
 e IASP Developing Countries Task Force 
(now the Developing Countries Working Group) was 
founded to encourage ongoing medical education and 
clinical training in low-resource countries and is sup-
porting local eff orts to raise awareness of pain. Th
 e ed-
ucational grant program, the “Initiative for Improving 
Pain Education,” addresses the need for improved edu-
cation about pain and its treatment in developing coun-
tries by providing educational support grants. Th
grants are intended to improve the scope and availabil-
ity of essential education for pain clinicians of all disci-
plines, taking into account specifi c local needs. Follow-
ing a joint proposal by the University of Nairobi (N. B. 
Patel) and the Charité University Medicine Berlin (A. 
Kopf ), the IASP awarded one of the grants to a book 
project on pain management in low-resource countries. 
  e result is this Guide, which is intended to provide 
concise and up-to-date-information in a novel curricu-
lum structure for the medical practitioner in countries 
belonging to the developing world. It will also serve 
medical faculties by suggesting core curriculum topics 
on pain physiology and management. It is believed that 
the project will encourage medical colleges to integrate 
these educational objectives into their local student and 
nursing curriculums. It will provide the non-pain spe-
cialist with basic relevant information—in a form that 
is easily understood—about the physiology of pain and 
the diff erent management and treatment approaches 
for diff erent types and syndromes of pain. 
Any practitioner who deals with pain problems 
must be aware of the entire range of pathophysiological 
and psychopathological problems that are commonly 
encountered in pain patients, and must therefore have 
access to a reasonable range of medical, physical, and 
psychological therapies to avoid imposing on the pa-
tients and society any additional fi nancial and person-
al costs. Th
  e aim of these eff orts is to ensure that pain 
control receives higher priority, especially in the treat-
ment of cancer and HIV/AIDS patients, as well as for 
postoperative and injury-related acute pain. Th
this book will encourage the management of patients 
with acute and chronic pain, since it is well understood 
from the literature that even basic education has a con-
siderable impact on the quality of analgesic therapy for 
the patient.
  e editors appreciate the enthusiasm and ef-
forts put in by the volunteer authors of this Guide, 
without whom this book would not have been possible. 
Many have experience in the problems faced by health 
care providers in the developing world. Th
 ey have 
tried to project their thoughts into particular situations 
and settings: “Can I cope with what is expected of me, 
working as a doctor or nurse or health care provider in 
a developing country and facing a wide range of pain 
problems?” Th
  is question has presumably passed uneas-
ily through the minds of many practitioners. Th
 e pur-
pose is to provide the reader with various approaches to 
the management of some common pain management 
problems. It is by no means intended to be a defi nitive 
reference. Treatment algorithms presented are based 
on the review of available literature and experience in 
pain clinics, with a specifi c view on the potential local 
limitations in the developing world. Instead of a text-
book approach with independent chapters written in a 
systematic manner, the Guide tries to follow a problem-
orientated learning path. Th
  e chapters are intended to 

be suffi
  ciently broad and understandable to be of value 
to the nonspecialist. Th
  e structure, including questions 
and answers, pearls of wisdom, and illustrative case re-
ports, as well as valuable literature suggestions for fur-
ther reading, will, we hope, make the Guide a helpful 
companion and aid to pain management. All readers 
are invited to contribute to the improvement of further 
editions by sending their comments and suggestions to 
the editors.
 e  Guide does have some shortcomings. 
Although pain management has been a topic of in-
creased interest for at least two decades, developing 
countries have few initiatives in this direction, and 
little is known about the needs, characteristics, and 
treatment modalities with regard to pain. Refresher 
courses, workshops, medical schools, conferences, 
and schools of anesthesia usually have not actively 
incorporated pain management in their training pro-
grams for students, residents, clinical offi
  cers,  and 
nurses. Th
  erefore, knowledge about the local charac-
teristics of pain and treatment-related modalities is 
scarce, which has made it diffi
  cult for us to determine 
the relevance of some of the topics but will, we hope, 
not limit the usefulness of the Guide.  Th
 e authors, 
with their wide international background, have tried 
to provide an ubiquitous view on pain management. It 
is the hope of the editors that the Guide will be use-
ful to readers from a variety of regions of the world 
and from a variety of medical health care providers. 
Depending on feedback from the readers, the editors 
plan to produce a second volume with an emphasis on 
the general terms and requirements of good pain man-
agement, and possibly revised editions as well as edi-
tions in other common languages.
