Australasian Palliative Link International (APLI) was founded at the Hospice Care in Asia conference, Singapore, in 1996. Its objectives are:

  • to develop and foster links between palliative care providers and organisations in Australia and New Zealand and the Asia-Pacific region
  • to raise awareness of the needs of new palliative care services and the need for further development of the discipline in the region.
  • to provide a forum for the exchange of information and ideas between providers of palliative care in the region.

Particular links have developed over the past 15 years with Indian Palliative Care colleagues. Members have been involved in teaching health professionals in Malaysia, China, Nepal, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Sri Lanka and the Democratic Republic of the Congo and fostering the development of Palliative Care in Timor Leste.

Our activities are largely centred on assisting with palliative care capacity building in the Asia Pacific region, such as sponsorships of volunteers, observership opportunities for new palliative care doctors and nurses, and sharing resources.
