This event takes places at Worldwide on Saturday, 14 October 2017

World Hospice and Palliative Care Day is organised by a committee of the Worldwide Palliative Care Alliance, a network of hospice and palliative care national and regional organisations that support the development of hospice and palliative care worldwide.

It aims to:

  • Share its vision to increase the availability of hospice and palliative care throughout the world by creating opportunities to speak out about the issues.
  • Raise awareness and understanding of the needs – medical, social, practical, spiritual – of people living with a life limiting illness and their families.
  • Raise funds to support and develop hospice and palliative care services around the world.
