Palliative Care - not a Luxury, but a Human Right and an Essential Element of Universal Health Coverage

25 July, 2020

Dear All,

Please, find, the last MMS Bulletin Swiss online journal for international cooperation and health on Palliative Care - not a Luxury, but a Human Right and an Essential Element of Universal Health Coverage (UHC)

https://www.medicusmundi.ch/en/bulletin/mms-bulletin/palliative-care-not...

Palliative care and pain relief are among the most neglected dimensions of global health today, not least in discussions around universal health coverage. Scientific and medical advances in the last century have prolonged and facilitated life and delayed death. The increasing prevalence of non-communicable diseases and aging populations mean that the demand for palliative care and medicine will continue to grow worldwide...

All my best regards.
