October 12, 2019

This year’s World Hospice and Palliative Care Day is on October 12, 2019.

The theme for this year’s palliative care day is: Palliative Care: it’s My Care, My Right.

The theme My Care, My Right aims to communicate that palliative care can be demanded by the public – and that, together, every person impacted by a life-limiting illness can influence their policy makers to prioritize palliative care financing under Universal Health Coverage.

Patient Get-together at IHMCT, Trivandrum

Every year, Pallium India commemorates World Hospice and Palliative Care day by taking the people we care for (including their families, of course) for an outing to a local amusement spot, beach, museum, zoo, park, etc. Many of these people are denied opportunities to see beyond the four walls of their houses and they cherish the memory of these fun-filled days and eagerly await the next one.

This year Pallium India is organizing a get-together of patients and their family members on 12th October 2019 at Institute of Hotel Management and Catering Technology (IHMCT), Kovalam from 9 a.m to 4 p.m. This program is being arranged with the enthusiastic support of the staff and students of IHMCT. We expect around 450 people to take part in it.
