Liliana De Lima, MHA
Liliana De Lima has a background in clinical psychology with a postgraduate degree in healthcare administration, a fellowship in pain and policy and doctoral studies in healthcare policy and administration. She has been the Executive Director of IAHPC since early 2000. In this capacity, Liliana has the overall responsibility of managing the day-to-day tasks of the organization and implementing the strategic plan developed by the IAHPC Board of Directors.
Before taking this position, Liliana was program director at the Department of Palliative Care in the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. Previously she worked with the Pan American Health Organization in developing a regional framework in palliative care for countries in Latin America. Before her move to the USA, she was the founder and coordinator of the hospice La Viga, in Cali, Colombia, her native country. La Viga was the first hospice in the Latin American region and served as a center of reference for other hospice programs and palliative care initiatives throughout Colombia.
Liliana has been working in palliative care for more than 25 years - her primary interests are supporting and advancing palliative care initiatives and policies in low and middle income countries. She serves on the World Health Organization Expert Committee on Drug Dependence and on other working committees. She has implemented opioid availability workshops in 12 countries in Latin America and has served as a consultant and adviser to governments in the process of designing and implementing national palliative care programs and policies.
Liliana received the award for the State of Texas Traineeship for high scholastic achievement students and the Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society Certificate of recognition for high scholastic achievement. In 2014, she was awarded the John Loeser Presidential Award by the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP) for her contribution to the availability and access to pain treatment and advancement of palliative care in the world.
In her role as IAHPC Executive Director, Liliana has established strong relationships with other regional and national organizations, developed sustained relations with its board members, and successfully administered resources to fulfill the organization's mission. To date, she has raised more than four million dollars to support the organization.
She helped develop and implement several IAHPC projects, including the IAHPC List of Essential Medicines for Palliative Care in 2007, the IAHPC List of Essential Practices in Palliative Care in 2012, the IAHPC Opioid Essential Prescription Package in 2012 and the application to the WHO for the List of Essential Medicines in Palliative Care for the Expert Committee on the Selection and Use of Medicines in April 2013.
Liliana enjoys reading and taking walking tours in the countryside with her husband. Their children are married and live in Colombia and England.
