The aim of the study was to evaluate the current status of pediatric palliative home care in Poland. The survey based on the questionnaire, which analyzed annual number of patients and deaths, diagnoses, and age. The annual number of treated children per million of inhabitants was calculated. The data about 900 patients (852 children and 48 young adults with pediatric conditions) was obtained from 32 hospices. The total home care area covers for 93% of the population of Poland. The number of treated children per million inhabitants is diverse in different provinces, the highest in the Podkarpacki province and the lowest in the Lubuski province. There are still regions where pediatric palliative home care is not accessible.
