INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR HOSPICE AND PALLIATIVE CARE INC
June 27, 2010

What qualifies an organization to be called truly international? A truly international organization cannot really ignore the needs of developing countries which form at least 75% of the World’s population. The International Association for Hospice and Palliative Care (IAHPC) stands out in the global health care scene due to its efforts to relieve pain and suffering in the developing world. I have the following specific points to make in support of the above statement: 1. It has a graded membership fee structure, by which a member from a resource poor country has to pay as little as 10 dollars a year, as against a member from an affluent country having to pay more than five times as much. 2. It has established traveling scholarship & fellowship programs as well as faculty development grants which all have helped the poor. 3. It has created several precious resources (like Essential Medicines List) which have helped people the world over.

The Great!
