PRO PALLIATIVE CARE UNIT FUNDATION

We are a Costa Rican non-profit organization supported by the Law of Foundations No. 5338 from August, 1973 which in its first article declares:

“Hereby recognized legal own personality to foundations as private entities of public utility, which are established with non-profit endings in order to do or assist, by the fate of a heritage, educational, charitable, artistic, literary or scientific activities, mostly, all those that involve social welfare”

We started our working in 1992 with the objective of alleviating the pain that afflicts patients. We do this because the option of conventional medicine does not resolve the constant pain children suffer due to the characteristics of their illness.

MISSION

To facilitate the necessary human, material, and intellectual resources for teenagers and children who have a special condition of life and/or in terminal phase of the illness so that they can receive a proper and efficient attention to their families, with the guarantee of a service based on the principles and philosophy of Palliative Care..

VISION

To be the leader and supportive organization at national level in comprehensive care, teaching, and research in Pediatric Palliative Care, as well as an international point of reference in the implementation of such programs, recognized for excellence, commitment, solidarity, and innovation.
