Ranking palliative care across the world
Everyone hopes for a good death, or rather, “a good life to the very end”, but until recently there was little dedicated effort and investment to provide the resources and education that would make that possible. Public engagement and policy interventions to improve the quality of death through the provision of high-quality palliative care have gained momentum in recent years, and some countries have made great strides in improving affordable access to palliative care. The Economist Intelligence Unit’s Quality of Death Index, commissioned by the Lien Foundation, highlights those advances as well as the remaining challenges and gaps in policy and infrastructure.
