Hospices of Hope and BELhospice worked closely with the Ministry of Health in Serbia to develop and introduce a National Strategy on Palliative Care which was a significant advance in end of life care in Serbia.

This was followed by a project with the Ministry of Health and funded by the European Union called the “Development of Palliative Care Services in the Republic of Serbia" which we helped implement. The project included the establishment of the Centre for the Development of Palliative Care as well as development of programmes for undergraduate and postgraduate course in medical schools and similar organisations.
