Asia Pacific Hospice Conference

About the Conference


The biennial Asia Pacific Hospice Conferences of the Asia Pacific Hospice Palliative Care Network (APHN) were inaugurated in 1989 with the dual aims of enhancing our knowledge in hospice palliative care and for networking within the region.


This conference is the focal point which brings together workers, supporters and friends of hospice and palliative care in the Asia Pacific every two years.  


It is the place where news is shared, new knowledge disseminated, new developments celebrated, new friendships made and old friendships renewed.
