Challenges associated with paediatric pain management in Sub Saharan Africa

Factors such as inadequate training, language barriers, cultural diversity, limited resources and the burden of disease prevents sick and injured children from receiving basic pain care. This situation can only be rectified by providing pre and post graduate training on the safe use of analgesic preparations, the availability of drugs and government support.
