Morocco (population 32.21 million people) is a country in Northern Africa that covers an area of 446, 550 km2. The Moroccan Society of Management of Pain and Palliative Care was created within the National Institute of Oncology in Rabat in 1995. This designated centre provides the only palliative care service in Morocco: a ten-bed hospital inpatient unit and an outpatient clinic. Its reimbursement and funding for services is shown. There is no national cancer programme in Morocco, nor is there a national palliative care association. Initial palliative care training and education in Morocco has been undertaken by the Moroccan Society of Management of Pain and Palliative Care located in Rabat, which has a team of five doctors and fifteen nurses. The chapter then highlights the history and development of hospice-palliative care in Morocco.
