Cairdeas (pronounced ‘cardis’) is a Gaelic word meaning world-wide friendship and fellowship.

We are a Scottish-based charity which works in partnership with national and international individuals and organisations using a health systems approach to promote and faciliate the provision of high quality palliative care in resource limited settings. We work to promote and facilitate access to palliative care for those in the greatest need in various developing countries regardless of background. We work to achieve this through education, advocacy, mentorship and research. 

Where the need is greatest

Help support our work to improve the availability and quality of palliative care services in the developing world.
