Impact of APHN-LCPC movie “Life asked Death” – Part 1

“Relief of suffering is an ethical imperative.  We cannot walk away from suffering when we know we can do something about it,”

– Associate Professor Cynthia Goh, project leader of the Lien Collaborative

Following the warm reception of the primere of the APHN-LCPC movie “Life asked Death” in Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Myanmar, the movie has also touched the hearts of the audience at the screenings in Australia, Barbados, India, Malaysia, Philippines and Singapore. Riding on the wave of interest surrounding palliative care, there are plans to expand the reach of the movie. The upcoming activities are as follows:

  • China – We are planning on launching a campaign to promote the movie.
  • Thailand – We are working with the local champion for advocacy of palliative care to promote the film to all the Department of Medical Services (DMS) hospitals.
  • America, Europe and Africa – We will be extending the reach of the “Life asked Death” movie by working with the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) to use the movie as a resource material for World Cancer Day on 4 February 2017.
