NCDs, Pain, Palliative Care

The Global #PalliativeCare Atlas: A joint @WHO and @theWPCA publication.


Atlas Cover

The WHO and the World Palliative Care Alliance are to be congratulated for the release of the Global Atlas of Palliative Care at the End of Life!  This is another part of the ongoing progress within the Global Health Community to advance palliative care!

It is (conservatively) estimated that every year more than 20 million people need palliative care near the end of life!    A number of highlights…..

  • A cancer diagnosis represents the reason for palliative care in only one third of those needing care. Other life limiting diseases such as cardiovascular disease, HIV/AIDs, MDRTB, chronic lung disease need palliative care.
  • Children represent 6% of those who need palliative care!
  • The low level of opioid consumption is documented in many countries of the world.

I urge you to download and review the atlas

    of the fears a person stricken with SAD stresses about.
    In these cases it is advisable to consults physician and consumes some drugs as suggested by
    the doctor. Discover it all and how to use it step-by-step with a free guide I’ve
    written so you can confidently socialize and enjoy life.
