Universal Health Coverage Day video released

Monday, 12 December 2016 Print

On Universal Health Coverage Day, 12th December, the Worldwide Hospice Palliative Care Alliance launched this animated short on hospice and palliative care globally. We, as palliative care advocates and practitioners, want to ensure that palliative care is a core component in universal health coverage schemes nationally.

Organisations and individuals around the globe pledged to 'Act with Ambition' to ensure that everyone can access quality essential health services without financial hardship. Palliative care is a defining aspect of Universal Health Coverage (UHC) and Universal Health Coverage by 2030 is one of the core targets of the Sustainable Development Goals.

We hope that this short supports your work to raise awareness of what hospice and palliative care is and how it fits with Universal Health Coverage.
