WHO Collaborating Centre Activities

The Research Institute for Hospice/Palliative care commenced its international exchange activities after being designated as a Collaborating Centre by World Health Organization (WHO) in 1995. The research institute has been conducting research and training programs as the sole Collaborating Centre responsible for education and training in palliative care of the Western Pacific region.

In order to assist the establishment of hospice and palliative care in underdeveloped countries, a hospice and palliative care training program was developed, through which the research institute has been spearheading the efforts to foster related healthcare professionals in low- and middle-income countries since 2017, in addition to the research activities carried out to contribute to the spread of holistic care.
