Hospis Malaysia

(Unverified non-profit organisation)

Hospis Malaysia is a charitable organisation established in August 1991 aimed at addressing the need to develop and provide professional palliative care services to those who live within the Klang Valley in Malaysia.

Not affiliated with any political, religious, governmental or private groups, Hospis Malaysia depends greatly on public 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 full time 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 by-product 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.
