A world where palliative care is accessible by all.
To promote and facilitate the provision of high quality palliative care in the developing world where such care is limited.
We seek to work in partnership with organisations and individuals to empower sustainable developments in palliative care.
We are needs-led and only work in response to requests from local colleagues.
We provide expertise, education, training, mentoring and support.
We seek to influence policy makers by raising awareness of palliative care needs in the developing world with governments, NGOs, donor agencies and academic institutions.
We respect the integrity of each person: their faith, background and lifestyle.
We are motivated by compassion inspired by the love of Christ.
