This chapter reviews the progress that has been made in research into global palliative care development during the first decade of the new millennium. It sets out the work that has been done by key non-governmental organizations to promote palliative care internationally, focusing particularly on the years after 2000. It then considers some innovative empirical studies on palliative care development that have provided data to map provision at the national level, sometimes with a focus on world regions. It highlights the scale of the research challenge involved in producing and maintaining an accurate analysis of the global state of palliative care. It goes on to explore the role of funding agencies and the extent to which palliative care has been ‘framed’ within international policy discourse. Above all it emphasizes the still-limited progress that has been made in integrating palliative care within the architecture of global, regional, and national policy-making.

Keywords:   global palliative care development, palliative care research, end-of-life care
