KUALA LUMPUR: A photo exhibition on the “New Face of Palliative Care” will be held from April 25 to April 29 to raise awareness on the different aspects of palliative care.
Organised by Hospis Malaysia, the exhibition at the Blue Zone/G2, Publika, Solaris Dutamas will feature works from local photographers S.C. Sekhar, David Lok and Lim Sok Lin.
In a statement, Hospis Malaysia said Shekar had captured the daily lives of patients receiving treatment and care while Lok and Lim had focused on celebrities and their work in raising awareness on palliative care.
Among the personalities who had contributed included Hans Issac, Datin Seri Tiara Jacquelina, Datuk Yasmin Yusoff, Sharifah Amani, Sheila Majid and Elaine Daly.
“The photo exhibition will introduce a new identity for palliative care through a globally-recognised symbol.
“The new logo stands to become a common visual identity for palliative care, cutting across language, age, religion and cultural barriers,” said Hospis Malaysia general manager Tham Su Ming.
Tham said that few patients had access to palliative care, which is a holistic form of care for the person’s physical and mental well-being.
Among the reasons were insufficient trained personnel, funding, reduced access to medication and a lack of national policies.
The exhibition will take place from 10am to 10pm.
