Australasian Palliative Link International (APLI) was founded at the Hospice Care in Asia conference, Singapore, in 1996.
APLI is an Australian-based charity whose purpose is the relief of suffering arising from advanced illness.
APLI aims to achieve this through mentoring and supporting health care professionals involved in the relief of pain and the provision of palliative care in low-and-middle-income countries in the Asia Pacific region.
APLI also advocates to governments, international agencies and national organisations to address specific gaps in palliative care within countries in the Western Pacific region.
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.
- APLI does not operate for profit, personal gain or other benefit of particular people.
What is World Hospice and Palliative Care Day (WHPCD)? World Hospice and Palliative Care Day is an annual unified day of action to celebrate and support hospice and palliative care around the world.
