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.
- APLI does not operate for profit, personal gain or other benefit of particular people.
