    ChildKind International is dedicated to improving the quality of pediatric pain care around the world.  ChildKind achieves this mission through the awarding of a certification of excellence, recognizing healthcare facilities that have developed standardized, institution-wide approaches to the assessment and treatment of children’s pain. ChildKind also maintains an open-access resource library that serves as an exchange of knowledge, best practices, and protocols in the prevention and treatment of pain.

The Moonshine production team filmed in India, Uganda, Singapore, Canada, China, USA, South Africa, Australia, Georgia, Ireland, and Hong Kong. Through interviews with doctors, patients, and their families, they explored a diverse range of cultural perspectives on pain, death and dying.
