Review for INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR HOSPICE AND PALLIATIVE CARE INC, Houston, TX, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

When I returned to my native Jamaica in 2002, after spending 12 years in the UK, working in Oncology and Palliative Medicine, I found that I was pretty much alone in promoting palliative care in Jamaica at the time. I then discovered the IAHPC which seemed to represent the "little people". This organization provides support, information, education and scholarships for health professionals principally from the developing world. I was a lucky recipient of such a scholarship in November last year when the award enabled me to attend an important educational meeting in Houston. The IAHPC is a champion for those of us in the developing world trying to advance hospice and palliative care in challenging circumstances.
