Why Palliative Care?
Rise of Disease
The rising cancer rates across Kenya as well as the AIDS crisis has increased the need for well-developed and integrated hospice and palliative care services. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 80% of cancer patients in Africa have advanced incurable disease at first presentation to a health facility, and cancer rates in this continent are expected to grow by 400% in the next 50 years.
Basic Human Right
The WHO states that palliative care is a basic human right and defined this care as “an approach that improves the quality of life of patients and their families facing the problems associated with life-threatening illness, through the prevention and relief of suffering by means of early identification and impeccable assessment and treatment of pain and other problems, physical, psychosocial and spiritual.
What we do
We exist to offer holistic care to men, women and children suffering from life-threatening illnesses, which includes pain and symptom management, nutrition, physical therapy, and psychological and spiritual support.
We serve the need for palliative care in Western Kenya through two in-patient facilities, a regional funeral home and home-based care programs.
