Death in Mongolia

Though rich Western nations tend to rank above poorer nations for palliative care, Mongolia came in 28th in the 2015 Quality of Death Index, ahead of several countries with more money and better health care systems.
 
Mongolia’s palliative care system has improved dramatically in the past decade, thanks in part to advocates such as physician Odontuya Davaasuren, who began pushing for government reforms in 2000 after her father’s death from lung cancer. Today, every provincial hospital has 5 or more palliative care beds and a morphine dispensary, and the national health service must offer palliative care to dying patients.
