WHERE WE WORK
PACED works to improve palliative care in Central Asia, Caucasus, and Eastern Europe. Although we support the Baltic states, our primary focus is on countries outside the European Union.
Baltics: Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania
Eastern Europe: Moldova, Romania
Caucasus: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia
Central Asia: Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan
HOW WE WORK
Palliative care services in the countries of PACED presence began improving in the 1990s, but the rate of progress has varied greatly between and within countries.

Every country in the region is in the lowest quartile of European countries for the consumption of strong opioids per capita – the most widely used proxy indicator for the availability of pain relief. This is typical of many resource poor countries, where only basic medical care is available for most health conditions and palliative care is rarely a priority.

PACED tackles these issues through a focus on education: building the skills and knowledge of health and care professionals, raising standards of palliative care education, and supporting the development of individual services.
