The World Health Organization is currently consulting with member states on its concept note for its 13th General Programme of Work 2019-2023. Unfortunately, within the current draft concept note, palliative care has been omitted as part of the essential spectrum of health services under the Universal Health Coverage definition. We need to get member states (e.g. your governments) to respond to this consultation noting the omission and including our suggested language. Download a model letter to adapt and send to national governments, requesting that they support the inclusion of palliative care language in their submission to WHO.
