Twitter is one of the most effective tools for advocacy. Advocacy is defined by the Merriam-Webster dictionary as “the act or process of supporting a cause or proposal.”
IAHPC uses Twitter as one tool among many to advocate for improved access to palliative care and essential medicines as components of the right to health. Good tweets create awareness, identify supporters, build coalitions, and influence public policy for palliative care.
