In conjunction with World Hospice & Palliative Care Day (WHCPD), Hospis Malaysia will host its signature Annual Treasure Hunt. As a leading palliative care organization in the country working to advance equity to palliative care, and to mark its 30 years in service, we feel community engagement and greater public awareness need to proceed despite the pandemic, and the show must go on!
Our hunt this year will be a virtual one! Amidst deciphering cryptic clues and trekking the globe on Google Maps, hunters will be asked questions about palliative care and our organization.
