World Hospice & Palliative Care Day

World Hospice and Palliative Care Day

World Hospice and Palliative Care Day

On Saturday, October 12 2019, something extraordinary is going to happen.

People from around the world who have been impacted by a life-limiting illness — either personally or by supporting a loved one — will be making their voices heard, asking policy makers to pay attention to prioritize palliative care policies and services. Further, people who have been standing in solidarity with them — local leaders, volunteers, advocates, clinicians — will be volunteering their time to amplify this public message: Palliative Care: it’s “My Care, My Right.”
