World Hospice and Palliative Care Day

Today, 12 October, 2019, is World Hospice and Palliative Care Day – a day where we can celebrate the support that hospices and palliative care provide.

People from around the world who have been impacted by a life-limiting illness — either personally or by supporting a loved one — will be making their voices heard, asking policy makers to pay attention to prioritize palliative care policies and services. This year’s theme My Care, My Right aims to communicate that palliative care can be demanded by the public – and that, together, every person impacted by a life limiting illness can influence their policy makers to prioritize palliative care financing under Universal Health Coverage.
