INTRODUCTION

After the 12th APHC in Singapore in 2017, Indonesia – through The Indonesian Palliative Society (MPI) – has expressed their willingness to host The 13th Asia Pacific Hospice Palliative Care Conference 2019. Indonesia understands the importance of its role in the Asia Pacific region to participate in the update of science and knowledge on palliative care.

As an initiator of palliative science and knowledge progress in Indonesia, Surabaya has been appointed as the next host in this biennial event. The local team has been utilising all existing resources and getting ready the facilities and infrastructure to meet the standards of a world class event. From event execution, safety and comfort of the participants, to supporting facilities such as tourist attractions, Surabaya is prepared to welcome The 13th Asia Pacific Hospice Palliative Care Conference 2019 participants.

With the trust that has been given and the remaining time, Indonesia is optimistic that the 13th Asia Pacific Hospice Palliative Care Conference 2019 will go well and achieve the optimum result.
