In 2021-22, with funding from UK aid from the UK government, we will train over 200 community health volunteers across Kenya. We will support them to raise awareness of cancer and provide life-changing palliative care.
Our Partners in Kenya
We work closely with our partner, Kenya Hospices and Palliative Care Association (KEHPCA), to identify need and develop and implement projects. KEHPCA is the umbrella body for hospices and palliative care units in the country, supporting the establishment, scaling up, and setting standards for palliative care provision in Kenya. By advocating for change KEHPCA has worked with the Kenyan government to set up palliative care facilities within government hospitals, with core funding from the government.
We provide scholarships to the Kenya Medical Training College for students of the Diploma in Palliative Care. We also sponsor students undertaking the Oxford Brookes Diploma in Palliative Care with Nairobi Hospice.
