Challenge

There are major disparities in the provision of palliative care around the world. The majority of countries no hot have formal palliative care policies or services. In 2000 the World Health Organization developed a guide of minimum standards. Two of these standards state that countries should adopt palliative care policies as well as ensure the training and education of health professionals.

Solution

The IAHPC provides palliative care professionals in developing countries with the opportunity to participate in international educational programs. The knowledge gained serve as a critical component in the development of palliative care in their organizations and those organization's patient population. The continuing educational provides exposure to a range of knowledge include patient care, policies affecting the treatment of pain, and up-to-date research in palliative care.

Long-Term Impact

The IAHPC has provided Traveling Scholarships (TS) to 514 professionals to participate in educational and/or training programs. The majority of our scholarships went to support individuals in Africa, Asia and Latin America. For programs to be held in 2017, the IAHPC received 134 TS applications. Due to financial constraints 70 TS applications were approved for funding, which is 53%. By raising $50,000, the IAHPC will be able to provide TS to additional 30 palliative care professionals
