IAHPC believes that palliative care workers, in addition to being health care providers, may also be effective agents of change in their own countries and settings.
The goal of the Traveling Scholarship program is to provide financial assistance to palliative care professionals to attend events that will enable them to improve palliative care in their settings. These should ultimately lead to better and adequate policies and/or institutional norms, increased access to palliative care as well as access to essential medicines for pain relief and palliative care.
This is an ongoing program, so there are no deadlines for applications unless stated. However, applications should be submitted to the IAHPC no later than 3 months in advance of the expected date of travel.
In order for an applicant to receive a traveling scholarship, the event must be listed in the IAHPC Calendar of Events. If the event is not listed, please direct the event organizers to add the event to the calendar. Listing the event in the IAHPC calendar is free.
The Traveling Scholarships program provides support to attend conferences, workshops, congresses and events that are applicable to the cultural and social economic level of the applicant’s place of work.
