The Worldwide Hospice and Palliative Care Alliance (WHPCA) launched the World Hospice and Palliative Care Day (WHPCD) 2022 toolkit on 14 June 2022. The theme for WHPCD 2022 is Healing Hearts and Communities. World Hospice and Palliative Care Day is an annual unified day of action to celebrate and support hospice and palliative care around the world.
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.
The resource toolkit is now Live! Feel free to download and start using the resources to promote, create awareness and start planning your campaigns. We will continue to add more resources and translated toolkits in the coming weeks and months. You can subscribe to the WHPCA Newsletter for campaign updates and the launch of new materials.
