With the enormous disparities in the provision of palliative care globally and the significant benefits that flow from its provision, the palliative care community began articulating a profound but challenging idea—that palliative care should be seen as a human right. There have been many such statements, from both the perspective of pain management and palliative care. This chapter explores how this proposition can be justified, what this proposition means in reality, and how using these concepts can be tools of advocacy and change.
