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 IAHPC 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 starting date of the activity.
The IAHPC Scholarship Program provides support to participate in conferences, workshops, congresses and events that are applicable to the cultural and social economic level of the applicant’s place of work, preferably conferences that are regional and international. This program does not provide funding for tuition of formal degree programs or clinical placements.
