Malaysian-made symbol adopted globally

World Hospice and Palliative Care Day fell on 10.10.2020, and we want to recognise Malaysia’s creative role for this meaningful day.

Led by the Worldwide Hospice Palliative Care Alliance, with member organizations in over 100 countries, the event carries the theme #MyCareMyComfort along with a made-in-Malaysia symbol which has been adopted globally.

“Many people don’t want to talk about end-of-life care until it happens. But we need to start the conversations, to break down barriers and misconceptions and all kinds of prejudices. I think it’s great a Malaysianmade symbol is recognised and adopted globally…”

Hospice care, better known as palliative care, is a medical approach that seeks to improve the quality of life for people and their families living with a life-threatening disease. With the Covid-19 pandemic and Malaysia in RMCO mode, the need for palliative care has never been more urgent.

The symbol was put together by a design team led by Creative Director Edward Ong, “Many people don’t want to talk about end-of-life care until it happens. But we need to start the conversations, to break down barriers and misconceptions and all kinds of prejudices. I think it’s great a Malaysian-made symbol is recognised and adopted globally. Hospis Malaysia played a major role in bringing this to the world stage.” 

In 2019, Malaysia launched its first National Palliative Care Policy and Strategic Plan (2019-2030) and the symbol played a part in bringing stakeholders together to understand the importance of the national plan in strengthening palliative care within our healthcare system.
