The Human Development Index of the United Nations Development Programme is commonly used for international comparisons of the relative development status of whole countries.
This index combines three standard indicators:
1. Real GDP per person (gross domestic product divided by mid-year population), which adjusts the standard GDP according to country-specific purchasing power parity calculations
2. Adult literacy rate
3. Life expectancy
As COVID-19 impacts families, communities, and public health systems all over the world, we are challenged to commit still more deeply to our vision of a world free from health-related suffering. The IAHPC is working hard to strengthen our networks and prepare our membership to meet the unprecedented spike in demand.
This month we are asking our readers to donate a small amount. We are a not for profit organization dedicated to the advancement of hospice and palliative care in the world to alleviate serious health related suffering of millions of patients and families around the world.
We have many visitors to this website. If everyone could donate US$ 3, we could meet the additional expenses that we are facing. Please consider donating to help our work and to keep our organization running for you, and thousands like you around the world.
