Dear Sir/Madam

Warm greetings from the Organising Committee IAPCONKochi2019.

We have immense pleasure to announce the conduct of the 26th International Conference of Indian Association of Palliative Care – IAPCONKochi2019 – on 8th, 9th and 10th February 2019 with a Pre-Conference Workshop on 7th February 2019 at AELI Hills, Keezhmadu, Aluva, Ernakulam, Kerala, India.

This international conference provides the palliative care workers across the globe to meet on a common platform to discuss and exchange knowledge and experience in various aspects of patient care apart from meeting fellow members in the profession, networking, and sharing moments of togetherness. Delegates from more than 70 countries and from across India are attending this conference.

The Indian Association of Palliative Care was set up in 1994 in consultation with the World Health Organisation and the Government of India as a national forum to connect, support and motivate individuals and institutions involved in palliative care.

Consortium of Pain and Palliative Care Units in Ernakulam District is a common platform to coordinate the activities of around 43 palliative care centres in Ernakulam District.  We have once again been privileged to host an international conference of Indian Association of Palliative Care, the first being the 15th Annual conference held in Kochi in 2008.

The Conference theme “Voices in palliative care; ensuring quality, creating solutions” centres around the core palliative care attitude of listening…to those living with serious health-related suffering and their families, to our communities, to our palliative care teams, to global palliative care advocates and to our policy and academic leaders.  We will listen, learn and act, to move forward with creative solutions.

AELI Hills, a hillock on a hill, is a rare combination of how abundantly Nature cares for us and how graciously we give in return. 

AELI International and CIPLA Palliative Care & Training Centre join hands with us as the Conference Partners for the successful conduct of this international event.

We are sure you would return after the conference with good memories to keep close to your heart.

We welcome you to IAPCONKochi2019 and lets together make it a grand success.
