Dying in Dignity

This video highlights the efforts of the Open Society Initiative for Eastern Africa to increase public awareness of end-of-life care issues and promote the integration of palliative care into national health sector plans, legal frameworks, and education programs. The initiative also supports advocacy to ensure availability of essential drugs for palliative care, and implementation of palliative care services across the continuum of health care delivery, including home care and inpatient facilities like hospices, hospitals, and homes for the elderly.
