Graham Perolls OBE CMG is founder and executive director of Hospices of Hope, the leading palliative care development organisation in South-East Europe

For 25 years Graham has been a driving force behind the delivery of hospice and palliative care starting in Romania in 1992 and expanding with partners in Serbia in 2006 and Moldova in 2008, facilitating care for 30,000 and training 20,000 health care professionals from all over Central and Eastern Europe.
