1. The Voluntary Assisted Dying Law in Victoria - Go Gentle Australia


Victoria's law came into effect on 19 June 2019, after an eighteen-month implementation period. It offers a choice to competent adults with a terminal illness and six months or less to live. For those dying of neuro-degenerative diseases, such as MND or MS, the time frame is extended to twelve months or less to live.
