INTERNATIONAL CHILDREN’S PALLIATIVE CARE NETWORK
To live in a world where children’s palliative care is acknowledged and respected as a unique service, and every child and young person with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions and their families can receive the best quality of life and care regardless of which country they live in.
