This project has now come to an end. It aimed to strengthen the voice of direct palliative care stakeholders and increase their impact as advocates to improve access to quality palliative care worldwide. Palliative care direct stakeholders are people who are currently living with conditions that require palliative care now or may require it in the future and those who are in older age and approaching the end of the life cycle.
We believe that the voice of direct stakeholders is critical to increasing the impact of palliative care advocacy so better care is available to more people who need it. At the same time, in many settings direct stakeholders have not being given the opportunities to speak out and participate in all stages of palliative care advocacy activities. We are trying to find some new ways to address this.
