Happy New Year!

The holidays are behind us and we’re cautiously – but optimistically –looking forward to another year of increasing access to palliative care through partnerships, education and collaboration. Here are some of the things we have on our agenda for 2022!

• Partnership Survey – we ask our partners to please help us understand the impact your partnership has by completing the 2021 Partnership Survey. We will be sending partners an email with a link to the survey later this month. We aggregate the data we receive to help show our donors and supporters how much they’ve helped increase access to palliative care. It also helps potential donors understand the scope of our work. Thank you in advance for taking the time to complete the survey.

• Global Partnership Award – we’re looking forward to recognizing a partnership that went above and beyond expectations in 2021 and reflects the core values of our partnerships. Eligibility and selection criteria can be found here. The award will be presented at National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization’s Leadership and Advocacy Conference being held March 7-9.

• Leadership and Advocacy Conference – please let us know if you plan to be at the conference. We’d love to catch up with you whether you’re a current partner, past partner, supporter, or just interested in our work. In addition to presenting the Global Partnership Award, we also plan to hold our first-quarter Advisory Council meeting at this year’s conference.

• Further Collaboration on Communications – as the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted, digital communications continue to be vital for palliative care advocacy and awareness. We’re planning additional resources to help our partners, particularly our African partners, use social media platforms and their websites to inform, educate and advocate.

• 7th International African Palliative Care Conference and the 4th Session of African Ministers of Health on Palliative Care – whether you’re a GPIC partner or supporter, we hope you will consider being part of this important conference in August 2022, either virtually or in person. We will share more information on this as it becomes available.

• 23rd International Conference on Palliative Care – we also encourage you consider joining this international conference, which takes place October 18-21, 2022, in Montreal, Canada. More information is available here.

Finally, thank you for all you do to enhance access to palliative care around the globe. Because of you, patients in low-resource settings experience a better quality of living!

Partnership visits are an important aspect of building the relationship between partners.
