The 2017 conference of Public Health and Palliative Care International is being held in beautiful Ottawa, Canada and is the 5th international meeting for palliative care and public health. This conference is building on the international momentum of the first four conferences, held in India, Bangladesh, Ireland, and England, and is inviting the world to gather once again in Canada’s National Capital.

For this conference, Public Health and Palliative Care International is pleased to announce a conference partnership with the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association, and Pallium Canada. This conference provides doctors, nurses, pharmacists, social workers, public health, palliative care and other allied healthcare professionals; and carers/volunteers and community, with the opportunity to share their experience and expertise on an international platform.
