It is a pleasure to invite you to the 16th World Congress of the EAPC in Berlin, 23-25 May 2019.  As questions are asked related to equitable access to palliative care in Europe and around the world, the congress “Global Palliative Care — Shaping the future” will explore how palliative care fits with the current global health agenda.

Five years on from the adoption of the 2014 World Health Assembly Resolution on Palliative Care, the EAPC Berlin congress is the perfect time to reflect on our progress in the development of palliative care globally and to identify areas where more needs to be done. Our Congress will take place shortly after the 2018 United Nations High Level Meeting on non-communicable diseases, and this will give delegates the opportunity to examine the extent to which palliative care has been included in universal health coverage within our various health systems.
