Palliative care has gained considerable attention at the global, regional and national levels and there has been follow-up on actions outlined in the 2014 World Health Assembly (WHA) Resolution on palliative care. The WHA Resolution called countries to action to integrate palliative care into their national health strategies and as part of universal health coverage (UHC) efforts. Further, important contributions have been made to the literature on palliative care overall and at the end of life, such as by the Lancet Commission on Global Access to Palliative Care and Pain Relief as well as on quality healthcare.
Through this research, the Quality of Death and Dying Index will be published and it seeks to facilitate monitoring of country-level progress based on domains/sub-domains and indicators used to define quality of death and dying in the discourse on end-of-life care, and within the context of the contrasting realities occurring worldwide. Examining the various trajectories that countries have followed and the experiences of end-of-life care design and delivery by countries from different income groups and based on the viewpoint of diverse stakeholders will provide critical information for metrics development, namely the 2020 Quality of Death and Dying Index
