Hospice Africa

Founded by Nobel Peace Prize nominee, Professor Anne Merriman, Hospice Africa is a UK charity which was formed in 1993. The Vision is "palliative care for all in need in Africa". It has developed a culturally appropriate, affordable palliative care service to relieve the pain and distressing symptoms of terminally ill cancer and others adaptable to countries in Sub-Saharan Africa. Now training others throughout Africa in palliative care to degree level, it has the only institute dedicated to palliative care in Africa, training those from Anglophone and Francophone countries. Uganda, has their model for PC in Africa and is now recognised as the only African country with comprehensive PC (2014 WHO and WHPCA Global Atlas) and the second best place to die in Africa (Economist, Quality of death index, Dec 2015). This is now an award winning service for compassionate care and training of all cadres from community to all making decisions affecting those in need and their families, based on their ethos.
