Palliative care on World Health Assembly agenda

PCA statement, online 23 May 2016
“Palliative Care Australia (PCA) CEO Liz Callaghan looks forward to the review of the palliative care resolution at the sixty-ninth World Health Assembly which starts today in Geneva, Switzerland. “Two years ago a palliative care resolution was passed unanimously at the World Health Assembly to ask governments around the world to make palliative care a priority for their health systems.” “This week is Australia’s 20th National Palliative Care Week, and in the lead up to the Federal election we are calling on political parties to make palliative care a National Health Priority,” Ms Callaghan said.”
