ICPCN MAP ESTIMATING LEVELS OF CHILDREN’S PALLIATIVE CARE PROVISION WORLDWIDE
Support ICPCN today, and help put children’s palliative care on the world map
Research carried out by ICPCN estimates that the lives of more than 21 million children worldwide would greatly benefit from palliative care and 8 million of those need specialised end-of-life care. The map above shows estimates of CPC provision worldwide. The white areas are countries where little or no children’s pallaitive care is provided and the pale green areas only have very isolated services.
Children and young people with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions have very specific and unique palliative care needs, often different to those of adults.
The ICPCN is the only international network of organisations and individuals working within all children’s palliative care services across the world. We believe that every life-limited child deserves a high standard of total care, wherever they live in the world.
The ICPCN improves access to palliative care around the world through providing distance and face to face training for those working with children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions. The ICPCN also advocates at national and international levels for the inclusion of palliative care in healthcare systems.
Support ICPCN and help to make the voices of children and young people heard, respected, and acknowledged across the world.
Your donation, however small, will help ICPCN put children’s palliative care on the world map.
How your donation will make a difference in the lives of children
Join the campaign for the global development of children’s palliative care services by making a donation to ICPCN. Every doctor, nurse, social worker, spiritual leader, teacher or therapist we reach with our online and face to face training and mentoring has the potential to affect the lives of hundreds of children over the course of their working life. When we empower governments to develop a policy to provide children’s palliative care we can potentially change the lives of millions of children.
Your donation will help ICPCN to:
- Advocate and raise awareness of the needs of life-limited and life-threatened children, and their families at national and international level
- Support the face to face training we provide in countries where there are few or no children’s palliative care programmes
- Support the development and mentoring of existing programmes
- Develop our e-learning modules and their translation into different languages to broaden accessibility to children’s palliative care services
- Develop and maintain our website to provide information on CPC and enable children’s palliative care practitioners across the world to network and share good practice
- Support our global research agenda increasing the international evidence base for children’s palliative care
