The Open Society Foundations

For those readers interested in access to palliative care world-wide, we would like to draw attention to the work of the Open Society Foundations.

The Open Society Foundations work to ‘build vibrant and tolerant societies whose governments are accountable and open to the participation of all people’. 

The Health Programme, one of five core programmes, supports initiatives to make palliative care a part of public health systems worldwide. The Open Society Foundations has supported efforts to have palliative care recognised as a human right and campaigns for improved access to pain relief.
