Advocacy work for the inclusion of palliative care in health policies that lead to the improvement of quality of life of patients and caregivers. Your gift enables us to continue building and strengthening partnerships to accelerate global, regional, and national advocacy for palliative care.
We design and conduct studies that help us provide guidance and recommendations and take action based on the responses from the global palliative care community.

We disseminate information to raise public awareness and optimize the impact of our work. Our monthly newsletter and through our social media channels, we amplify the voices of providers and caregivers by sharing their stories. Our website registers almost 20,000 visitors per month, while Pallipedia – the online palliative care dictionary - registers 60,000 visitors per month.
