Promoting palliative care - education and advocacy

Samy from Egypt
Samy from Egypt

Samy is a palliative care physician and professor of clinical oncology in Egypt where the shortage of oral morphine is a major barrier to the development of palliative care.

"With the support of the IAHPC, I was fortunate to attend the EAPC 2017 World Congress in Madrid. It was an opportunity to discuss with international palliative care experts from around the world how to promote palliative care and cancer pain control in Egypt through education and advocacy.

Faced by many barriers, palliative care is at an early stage of development in Egypt with relatively few services providing palliative care for cancer patients. Morphine is the drug of choice for moderate/severe cancer pain control and is considered an essential medicine by the World Health Organization...  My attendance at the congress, gave me the chance to discuss the morphine shortage problem with international experts... Likewise, there was a chance to communicate with palliative care professionals from my own region: Kuwait, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and Sudan; in particular we discussed research opportunities to address the palliative care needs in our cultures."

On behalf of our scholarship recipients and the entire IAHPC team, thank you for your generosity and making the Travel Scholarship Program possible.

Warm regards, 

IAHPC Team
