Editor’s corner

Welcome to the October issue of the newsletter.

Dr. Katherine Pettus reviews latest IAHPC advocacy involvement on the Policy Advocacy page. IAHPC Board Director, Dr. Chitra Venkateswaran, is our guest writer on the Featured Article page where she describes a new collaboration that brings hopes of wider integration of palliative care in pediatric oncology in India. Africa features strongly on two pages devoted to IAHPC Traveling Scholars; Valerie Maasdorp writes about Island Hospice in Zimbabwe and other grantees comment how the 5th African Palliative Care Conference in Kampala is making a big difference to their working lives. Dip inside for our usual great selection of reviews, abstracts and new resources.

Many thanks to everyone who has contributed to this issue.

All good wishes,

Avril Jackson
Senior Editor
