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.
The first Asia Pacific Hospice Conference (APHC) took place in Singapore in 1989 when hospice services were just getting established in the fast-developing economies of East Asia—in Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Singapore. This conference stimulated hospice development in the Southeast Asia region.
All this came to pass with the third APHC held in Hong Kong in 1999, the fourth in Taipei, Taiwan in 2001, the fifth in Osaka, Japan in 2003, and the sixth in Seoul, Korea in 2005. Further APHCs have been planned for Manila, Philippines in 2007 and Perth, Australia in 2009.
