Hospis Malaysia


The Ministry of Health estimates that every year more than 100,000 Malaysians will require palliative care at the end of their lives, and this number is expected to rise to more than 230,000 by 2030. Unfortunately, less than 10% currently have access to it*. 

 

The goal of palliative care is to alleviate the physical and emotional suffering of patients and families impacted by life-limiting illnesses such as cancer, AIDS, organ failure and degenerative neurological conditions so as to improve the patient and their family’s quality of life and enable the patient to continue to live with dignity. 

 

Hospis Malaysia is a charitable organisation that offers professional palliative care to those with life-limiting illnesses. One of our core services is our domiciliary palliative care service which is supported by a multidisciplinary team of palliative care-trained doctors, nurses, a pharmacist and an occupational therapist.

 

Our vision  is to ensure that every Malaysian has access to palliative care services when the need arises. To achieve this, we have developed a comprehensive education and training platform which aims to empower others to do what we do, so that one day, ALL Malaysians will have equal access to palliative care when in need.
