The IAHPC Traveling Fellowship program was started in 1999 and is designed to provide support to palliative care leaders who are invited to developing countries.
The achievements of the IAHPC Traveling Fellows have been truly remarkable and were able to produce observable improvements in the teaching and delivery of palliative care.
Through the Traveling Fellowship Program, IAHPC is making a significant difference to the development of palliative care in the developing world.
IAHPC has supported Traveling Fellows to countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Eastern Europe.
