On Saturday, we will be launching a report: “Palliative Care, COVID-19 and Universal Health Coverage”.
The importance of palliative care in the response to COVID-19 is well recognized. However, despite various policy commitments globally and nationally, there is concern that palliative care is not being integrated into COVID-19 responses, that essential palliative care services are being disrupted for adults and children with pre-existing conditions and people are experiencing avoidable serious health-related suffering as a result.
The report highlights the findings of a survey in June 2020 of the membership and partners of the WHPCA, the International Children’s Palliative Care Network and @Palchase Palliative Care in Humanitarian Aid Situations and Emergencies.
