The Dutch government launched an information campaign this week to help incurably ill people talk about death with their loved ones. The campaign is aimed at having a good conversation about how people want to go through the final phase of their life, Minister Hugo de Jonge of Public Health, Welfare and Sports said to newspaper Trouw.
"I want people to think much more about what they want. To express how they want to be supported in the last period. That they can die in the place they choose. It makes dying less difficult, less lonely, less painful", the Minister said.
