It is our pleasure to welcome all of you to the Asia Pacific Hospice Palliative Care Conference (APHC) 2023 which will be held at the Songdo Convensia in Incheon, Korea from October 4th to 7th, 2023.

It has been very long time for us to meet since social distance period of COVID-19 blocked our off line gathering and on-line meeting was the only way for us share our loss & inconvenience. Even we are still wearing mask until now, we never lose our hope to meet again and be together.

APHC 2023 will bring our hope to be together again as one of the sincere and high-quality Hospice and Palliative conferences under these circumstances. This conference has set into some well-woven programs with the main theme of ‘Expanding Horizons of Palliative Care in the New Era’, and readiness to share our knowledges, expertise, tips, pandemic experiences, and delaying sympathy of loss in each and every session again.

Traditionally, APHC has held Gala dinner and social communication time during the conference with all the participants as Hospice Palliative professionals and volunteers, too. Upcoming APHC 2023 Gala dinner and social communication time will be something far more than participation, and make you enjoy the exotic culture of each country. Also, APHC 2023 will celebrate us reunite at this time.

We have confidence that we could meet again at the on-site of APHC 2023 through this pandemic. Please be sure to mark and save the APHC 2023 conference dates!

We look forward to seeing you all together in Songdo Convensia, Incheon, Korea.
