Palliative care direct stakeholder trustee wanted – Worldwide Hospice Palliative Care Alliance

Do you currently access palliative care or are you living with a condition, or reaching an age, where you may require palliative care in the future? Do you want to help an international non-governmental organisation to improve access to palliative care for people who need it globally?

If so, then we want to hear from you!

We are looking for someone to join the Worldwide Hospice Palliative Care Alliance board of trustees as a representative of direct stakeholders globally. We need your help to increase the impact of our organisation and improve our accountability to people who currently need palliative care worldwide, or who may need it in the future.

The WHPCA is a global network of 250 organisations in 92 countries with a globally representative board. Over 60 million people are living and dying with serious health related suffering. It is estimated that less than 10% of those who need palliative care can access it. Our vision is a world with universal access to palliative care for all those who need it.
