World Hospice and Palliative Care Day 2022 & Toolkit

September 23, 2022

What is World Hospice and Palliative Care Day (WHPCD)?

World Hospice and Palliative Care Day is an annual unified day of action to celebrate and support hospice and palliative care around the world.

With one voice, we will celebrate the importance of palliative care to quality of life, and advocate for equitable access for all.

The WHPCD theme for 2022:

Healing Hearts and Communities

The experience of grief and the need to heal unites humans worldwide. With more than six million deaths worldwide during the COVID-19 pandemic resulting in tremendous strain on healthcare systems and unprecedented grief and suffering for health workers and caregivers. In addition, several conflicts and wars are taking place around the globe, resulting in millions of families and caregivers grieving the deaths of family and friends, experiencing social isolation and property destruction.
