International Association for Hospice & Palliative Care

Conference Partner - Scholarships

The International Association for Hospice and Palliative Care (IAPHC) will be supporting the Oceanic Palliative Care Conference (19OPCC) by providing Travel Scholarships to applicants from Lower, Lower-Middle and Upper-Middle income countries to attend 19OPCC.

The vision of the International Association for Hospice and Palliative Care is universal access to high-quality palliative care, integrated into all levels of healthcare systems in a continuum of care with disease prevention, early diagnosis and treatment, to assure that any patient’s or family caregiver’s suffering is relieved to the greatest extent possible.

IAHPC believes that palliative care workers, in addition to being health care providers, may also be effective agents of change in their own countries and settings.

The goal of the travel scholarship program is to provide financial assistance to palliative care professionals to attend events that will enable them to improve palliative care in their settings. These should ultimately lead to better and adequate policies and/or institutional norms, increased access to palliative care as well as access to essential medicines for pain relief and palliative care.
