"palliative care services available as air"

As 2017 begins, it is time to reflect on the IAHPC’s accomplishments and impact in 2016. So we turn to our Traveling Scholars. The IAHPC Traveling Scholarship program provides financial support to palliative care professionals from developing countries who wish to continue their education by attending a meeting, conference, seminar, workshop, internship, or in any other educational activity.

In 2016 the IAHPC supported 65 palliative care professionals from around the world to attend a meeting, conference, seminar, internship, or some form of an educational activity. Forty-three percent of our Traveling Scholarship recipients were from Africa, 22% from South America, 15% from Central America, 12% from Asia, 6% from the Caribbean and 2% from North America.

The IAHPC Team finds inspiration from our scholars who attended the 5th Internal African Palliative Care Conference in Uganda, which deepens our commitment to continue to advance palliative care throughout the world.

“We must make palliative care services available as air”.
Abiola from Ilorin, Nigeria quoting the former Uganda Minster of Health

“My patients are the greatest beneficiaries of my newly acquired knowledge and skills”
Andrew from East Coast Demerara, Guyana

“I have learnt … that no effort is too small and no challenge is too great to overcome.”
Anita from Kumasi, Ghana

“I now feel more confident and well equipped to advocate for … those in need (to) have access.”
Mildred from Harare, Zimbabwe

“My plan of action going forward is to advocate for the rights of children who have no voice.”
Penelope from Johannesburg, South Africa

From the entire IAHPC team, thank you for your generosity.
