The Victorian Government believes all Victorians are entitled to quality end of life care, which relieves pain and suffering, and provides compassionate support to family, friends and carers.

On 19 June 2019 the Voluntary Assisted Dying Act 2017External Link came into effect. Victorians who are at the end of life and who meet strict eligibility criteria can now request access to voluntary assisted dying.
