The toolkit is a collation of documents and guidance based on the four domains of the WHO public health strategy for palliative care: policy, education, implementation and drug availability.
It highlights how palliative care in the community needs to develop alongside specialist palliative care provision to ensure adequate provision of palliative care across all diseases and settings.
The aim of the toolkit is to share learning between different countries with similar challenges and resources to “fast-forward” the development of palliative care.
Copies of the short toolkit in English, French and German are available to download.
