IAHPC and UNU-IIGH are hosting a webinar on palliative care and health to celebrate this year’s World Hospice and Palliative Care Day.
By 2060, an estimated 48 million people (47% of all deaths globally) will die with serious health-related suffering, which represents an 87% increase from 26 million people in 2016. 83% of these deaths will occur in low-income and middle-income countries. Palliative care (PC) addresses serious health-related suffering.
Effective civil society advocacy and official support at all levels of governance are essential to ensure the integration of palliative care into health systems. Ahead of World Hospice and Palliative Care Day, the International Association for Hospice and Palliative Care and the United Nations University’s International Institute for Global Health will be co-hosting a webinar on October 7th.
We’ll hear from an international line-up of panellists, including policymakers from Ministries of Health and Civil Society representatives, who’ll be exploring the successes and challenges they’ve experienced advocating for, and integrating palliative care into, health systems.
Further details will be shared.
