PCA Roadmap 2022-2027

Investing to secure high-quality palliative care for all Australians who need it

The demand for palliative care is increasing, with the estimated demand in Australia expected to increase by 50% between now and 2035, and double by 2050. The population is growing and ageing, and many people will be diagnosed with chronic illnesses, which will increase the need and demand for palliative care in Australia.

To see a palliative care system across Australia that provides access to quality palliative care will require governments and other funders to see its worth and advocate for increased investment and policy support.

Palliative Care Australia (PCA) offers the following Roadmap to guide them in the direction that Australia needs to take from now till 2027 to ensure high-quality palliative care for all who need it, where and when they need it.

PCA has developed a Roadmap for meeting this burgeoning need for palliative care in Australia. Read more here.
