Asia Pacific Hospice 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.
A Brief History of APHC
In 1989, the “Update in Hospice Care” Conference was held in Singapore to provide opportunities for interaction and learning about hospice and palliative care.
In 1996, at the “Hospice in Asia” Conference in Singapore, it was decided to hold regular regional hospice conferences and that the conferences should be held every two years.
