INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR HOSPICE AND PALLIATIVE CARE INC
June 30, 2010

IAHPC is a key partner in the international advocacy and education process to build global palliative care capacity. As a participant in this process, I have found the services offered by IAHPC, partcularly the International Travel Scholarships to be invaluable to bring members together; the resouces at the IAHPC website to be easily accessible and very useful to many of the people I am working with; and now the access to palliative care journals to be a key resouces, as physicians and nurses in most countries do not have easy access to literature or educational resources.I hope IAHPC will dramatically increase its reach and membership in the coming year.
