The Association has established a biennial prize to be awarded to people who have made outstanding contributions for scientific merits in the excellence of pediatric palliative
care or have contributed with their excellent work to the advancement of pediatric palliative care.
In 2012 was awarded the first "No Pain for Children Award for Excellence in Paediatric Palliative Care" to Dr. Franca Benini.
The 2014 Award is dedicated to young researchers of excellence to encourage and support their contribution to the advancement of pediatric palliative care.
The awards are presented during the opening ceremony of the International Congress on Palliative Care Pediatric organized in Rome by Fondazione Maruzza Lefebvre d'Ovidio and consist of
a sum of money and a contemporary artwork chosen for the sensitivity of the artist and for its intrinsic emotional value towards children.
