Our leadership





Dr. Gilbert DESFOSSES, president of the Palliative care fund, has been heading the palliative care unit of the hospital Diaconesses Croix Saint-Simon in Paris for the past ten years. With 30 years of experience in the field of palliative care, he is one of its leading experts in France and has been president of SFAP, the French association for supportive and palliative care.


Laetitia DOSNE, our founder and managing director, spent 15 years in the cosmetic industry before creating the Palliative care fund with Dr. Desfosses in 2011. Dedicated to the cause, she has been volunteering for palliative care initiatives for more than a decade, and contributes her management, communication and lobbying skills to the Palliative care fund.


Ruthélie BRAU and Friederike KRAMER joined the Palliative care fund in 2012 and 2016 respectively. As our project managers, they are responsible for the daily functioning of the palliative care fund, by coordinating and managing the different projects, building awareness of the Palliative Care fund, expanding the scope of the projects, and providing direction and advice to the project leaders.
