WHPCA Programmes team are seeking project partners


The overall goal of the WHPCA programme team is to increase access to and availability of hospice and palliative care services, through the support of regional, national and local hospice and palliative care organisations. We support a public health approach to palliative care provision, and our strategy has two work streams;

  1. Supporting the implementation of the WHO Resolution on palliative care
  2. Capacity building to support palliative care service delivery, including for some of the most vulnerable and marginalised groups.

The WHPCA does not have its own programme funds, but we are conducting detailed research into appropriate global funding opportunities. We want to match projects to donors with the aim of increasing funding for palliative care and ultimately improving the lives of patients and their families.
We would like to hear from you about the projects and programmes you would like to run, in line with these work steams.

What you can expect from partnering with the WHPCA
If we find a match between your project and a funding opportunity, we will work with you to develop the project and submit a funding application to the relevant donor(s). During project implementation, we will provide support on project management, donor compliance, and monitoring and evaluation. We will also seek to draw lessons from project implementation and share these lessons widely with our members, and other relevant stakeholders worldwide.

If you have any questions, or would like to share your project ideas, please contact:
