The 25th of May, 2015 saw Palais des Nations in Geneva focussing on the problems of children with life-limiting diseases, during a side event organized by ICPCN with several collaborating organizations.

The story of the child who was killed by his parents who then committed suicide because they “could no longer bear to see the suffering of their son”, at Kanhangad in Kerala came under discussion as an example of how children suffer.

Renowned speakers from different parts of the globe, including Joan Marston, the Chief Executive of International Children’s Palliative Care Network (ICPCN), spoke on the occasion. The participants had a pleasant surprise when Dr Margaret Chan, the Director General of World Health Organization, dropped in at the event and addressed the audience.
