The petition requests governments to work in four areas:

  1. To develop health policies, which address the needs of patients with life-limiting or terminal illnesses,
  2. To ensure access to essential medicines, including controlled medications, to all who need them,
  3. To ensure that healthcare workers receive adequate training on palliative care and pain management at undergraduate and subsequent levels,
  4. To ensure the integration palliative care into healthcare systems at all levels.
