Traveling Fellowships

Traveling Fellowships Program

Purpose: to support the travel of individuals who are invited to spend time teaching palliative care in a host institution in a developing country.

To date, IAHPC has provided financial assistance to many palliative care professionals who accepted invitations to teach in countries such as Africa, Asia, Asia Pacific, Eastern Europe, Latin America and the Middle East. The collaboration of the IAHPC Traveling Fellows with their colleagues in developing countries have resulted in improvements in policies, education, access to medicines, and service delivery.

Traveling Fellowships are awarded to individuals for support to cover the cost of travel to teach and train colleagues in hospices, hospitals, palliative care units and community programs. The program requires the TF and the Host institution to develop a plan of action and activities during the visit.

This is an ongoing program, so there are no deadlines for applications unless stated. However, applications should be submitted to the IAHPC at least 3 months in advance of the expected date of travel.

Both the Traveling Fellowship applicant, and the Host organization (or a representative) must be current IAHPC members (if not, application for membership must be completed online).

To apply, the following documents must be submitted:
