World Hospice and Palliative Care Day

World Hospice and Palliative Care Day

 

 

The Director General of the World Health Organization, Dr Tedros Ghebreyesus, releases a video statement supporting World Hospice & Palliative Care Day 2021

What is World Hospice and Palliative Care Day (WHPCD)?

World Hospice and Palliative Care Day is an annual unified day of action to celebrate and support hospice and palliative care around the world. 

On WHPCD will celebrate palliative care, showing the world how vital it is, and why we must make sure everyone has access, no matter where they live, who they love, what their age or their background.

Voices will be heard as people living with palliative care needs and those that care for them, speak out, telling compelling stories to make you laugh, cry and think! As the world is still in the grip of the COVID-19 pandemic, where palliative care has become even more vital, we will ask policy makers to ensure an essential package of palliative care services is tailored to individual needs. World Hospice and Palliative Care Day will show why palliative care should be included within countries’ plans and budgets to “build back better” so governments finance palliative care for all.

The theme this year is:

"Leave no-one behind - equity in access to palliative care"

 

The Resouce Toolkit is now LIVE!

Download a wealth of resources, including the toolkit here

We will be adding more resources to the website over the coming months.

  • A fundraising hints and tips document
