Every year in Serbia 20,000 patients die from cancer.
According to available data, 33,4% die in hospitals, while for the others, there are no relevant statistics. These "hidden patients" are one of society's burning issues. Very few of them have access to specialist palliative care. In Belgrade and the rest of Serbia, there is still not one specialist inpatient hospice that provides multi-disciplinary palliative care to terminally ill cancer patients and their families.

In November 2015 BELhospice started a capital campaign for establishing the first inpatient hospice in Serbia. The new hospice will provide the following palliative care services free of charge:

Additionally, the new hospice will offer palliative care education for specialists
(doctors, nurses, social workers, psychologists and volunteers).
