On Saturday, 10 October 2020, 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. They will ask policy makers to ensure an essential package of palliative care services for all who need them and that this care is included within countries’ plans and budgets to build back better as part of Universal Health Coverage.
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 Comfort."
