This chapter presents a sampling of the growing number of pediatric hospice and palliative care programs around the world that are working to meet the needs of children with life-threatening conditions and their families. It describes the history and goals of the program as well as the organizations that organized them. The chapter suggests that these programs will continue to develop and expand around the world because of the efforts of the Children's Hospice International (CHI) in hosting its World Congresses.
