Hospis Malaysia is a charitable organisation that offers professional palliative care to patients who are suffering from life-limiting illness, and who live within Klang Valley. Care extended by Hospis Malaysia transcends age, gender, culture, religion and social standing and is offered at no charge. Located at Taman Sri Bahtera, Cheras, Hospis Malaysia serves as the base for the operational team, and houses within it office space, a Day Care Centre, a Resource Centre, a Counselling Room, and a Training Centre for the workshops we conduct regularly.
Not affiliated with any political, religious, governmental or private groups, Hospis Malaysia depends entirely on individual and corporate support as its source of funds. Besides donations received, the numerous fundraising events organised by Hospis Malaysia ensure a steady stream of fund inflow to enable continuous and effective running of the hospice. Funds received are managed by a team of council members who act, on a voluntary basis, as trustees of Hospis Malaysia’s funds while fulltime staff, headed by the CEO/Medical Director, handle the operational aspects of the hospice.
Over the years, Hospis Malaysia has established itself as a strong advocate for professional palliative care in the country. This recognition is the result of its committed involvement in major international palliative care developments, and its close working relationship with the Ministry of Health Malaysia, universities and clinical partners. Hospis Malaysia's track record as a committed palliative care education and training provider in the country, backed-up by its strong international teaching faculty, has also further reinforced its position in the field of palliative care, both locally and internationally.
Hospis Malaysia also has affiliations with notable international palliative care networks which complement and support its role as a recognised palliative care training and education provider in the country. One such collaboration is with the Asia Pacific Hospice Palliative Care Network (APHN). Dedicated to promoting hospice and palliative care in Asia and the Pacific, APHN acts as a bridge that links all its members who are interested in developing hospice and palliative care programs in the Asia Pacific region. We are also collaborate with the International Association for Hospice and Palliative Care (IAHPC), to focus on advancing palliative care programs, education, research and policies to improve the care provided to our patients.
