This video provides an overview of three expert opinions regarding why palliative care shouldn't be considered a "luxury" but rather an essential service. In 1.5 minutes it paints a picture of the burden of disease in Africa, and emphasises the impact of these services on the individual. This is done through a photo montage of patients from Uganda and Kenya receiving palliative care from a health care provider in different settings (home, clinic, hospital).
