Project description

English EN

Access to palliative care around the world

Palliative care is a relatively recent form of professional end-of-life care with cultural roots in Western Europe. Over the past decades, it has become widely practiced in North America, Europe, Australia and Japan, and presently we are seeing a rapidly increasing attention to developing palliative care services worldwide. Given the huge global diversity in approaching dying and end-of-life care, the ENDofLIFE project sets out to study why and how this particular form of end-of-life care is globalizing. It will investigate the expansion of palliative care and how practices, policies and discourses are translated, adapted and reconstituted in diverse socio-cultural settings. The project will focus on emerging palliative care services in Brazil, India and Indonesia. It will ethnographically study the interaction between the global mobility and articulation of palliative care discourses, national-level institutional care assemblages and local end-of-life care trajectories.
