Gaps and Actions in Health Improvement from Hong Kong and Beyond

Abstract

This chapter is divided into three parts. First, using a socio-ecological model, we highlight the major barriers, issues, and gaps of end-of-life (EOL) care in Hong Kong as identified in the government commissioned report published in 2017. Second, we give an update on the latest developments of EOL care after the commissioned report has been published. Finally, based on the findings from the government commissioned report and the developments thereafter, we reflect on where we think Hong Kong may stand now in terms of its EOL care and how to move forward.
