This month, we are proud to present the IAHPC 2021 Annual Report to our colleagues, funders, and the global palliative care community. The activities, initiatives, statements, and resources we implemented throughout 2021 and continue this year all aim to relieve serious health-related suffering and improve the quality of life of patients and families around the world.
We are also extremely grateful to our small staff of workers and officers who continue to do their job tirelessly to ensure that IAHPC achieves its mission and delivers on its promises. And to our Board of Directors for their guidance and wisdom in helping us do our jobs better.
We could not have achieved all the above and much more without the generous support of our Board of Directors, members, donors, and the foundations and other organizations that contribute in so many ways. Your generosity also helps keep most of our content free to palliative care workers in areas with fewer resources, so please consider making a gift to IAHPC through our website. Our ability to actualize this vision without incurring conflicts of interest largely depends on the support we receive from our members and readers.
We prepared this annual report using the framework of the Strategic Plan adopted in 2019 for the term 2020-2024. The plan focuses on four areas of work: advocacy, education, research, and information dissemination/communication. We hope that you will enjoy browsing through it as much as we enjoyed putting it together.
Until next month,
Lukas and Liliana
