Reaching Policy Makers

Worldwide, Non-Communicable Diseases or NCDs kill thirty eight million people a year.

They are fast becoming the most important cause of ill health that both the developed and the developing world have to face.

There is now good evidence to show that palliative care produces better health outcomes in terms of quality of life, and patient and caregiver satisfaction, with reduction of use of unwanted or ineffective medical interventions, and intensive care.

Does your country have a national strategy to develop palliative care services for cancer and other NCDs?

Every citizen in your country deserves to have access to palliative care if and when he needs it.
