Thank you, Ms Katherine Pettus of IAHPC, for informing us of the partnership entered upon between the European Commission (EC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) to upscale Universal Health Coverage in 66 different countries. India is one among the 66 countries.

Read the press releases from EU and WHO:

EU and World Health Organisation team up to boost access to health services in developing countries

WHO and EU reinforce cooperation for Universal Health Coverage

The EU pursues a rights-based approach to health, by supporting countries to design policies that maximised health benefits through the equitable treatment of all citizens, and it will be optimal if those of you who advocate in the countries where the partnership is being implemented, could ensure that palliative care is include in the deliberations.
