Supporting children's palliative care

International Children's Palliative Care Network 

"Building on the success of the first ICPCN conference in Mumbai, India (February 2014), the ICPCN is delighted to bring you the 2nd ICPCN Conference: Children’s Palliative Care – NOW!  The conference aims to bring together people from around the world and from all professions working with children with life-threatening and life-limiting conditions and encourage the exchange of knowledge, new and innovative ideas, research and experiences between them."

The Congress was held last May in my hometown, Buenos Aires. I was asked to send a message of support from Swaziland as "Hope House" (the diocesan hospice) dedicated some houses to children thanks to the partnership with "Rocking Horse Project".

It is in Spanish but clicking HERE you can find other messages sent by:
  • Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu
  • Dr Marie-Charlotte Bouesseau from WHO
  • ICPCN Global ambassador: Micheline Etkin
  • Javier Zanetti (Pupi)
  • ICPCN Global Youth Ambassador Lucy Watts


Basándose en el éxito de la primera conferencia de ICPCN en Mumbai, India (febrero de 2014), ICPCN se complace en ofrecer la segunda Conferencia en la cual pretende reunir a profesionales que trabajan con niños/ niñas y jóvenes con enfermedades amenazantes o limitantes para la vida, de todo el mundo y fomentar el intercambio entre ellos de conocimientos, ideas innovadoras, investigaciones y experiencias.
