Welcome to the September issue of the IAHPC Newsletter. Our Featured Article comes from Professor Rosa Buitrago, a member of the IAHPC’s Board of Directors, who talks about encouraging progress in Panama and urges us to think beyond cancer in palliative care. And ahead of World Hospice and Palliative Care Day, Joan Marston, CEO of the International Children’s Palliative Care Network, explains the theme of this year’s event and just why so many of the world’s children remain ‘hidden’ from palliative care.
