About Children's Palliative Care


The term “Palliative care” is derived from the Latin palliare, [to cloak] and refers to an approach to medical care which is focused on reducing the severity of distressing symptoms rather than striving to cure, halt or reverse the progression of a disease.

WHO Defines palliative care for children as a special, albeit closely related field to adult palliative care which includes the active, total care of the child’s body, mind and spirit, and also involves giving support to the family. It begins when illness is diagnosed, and continues regardless of whether or not a child receives treatment directed at the disease.
