Adjumani district has recorded over 3336 patients enrolled on palliative care and 2896 of these have since died due to poor quality of care. 80% of these are those suffering from Cancer with Breast and Cervical cancer recording the highest number of patients. Additionally Adjumani hospital does not have any cancer treatment unit or specialized medical personnel to provide the needed care and support.


Voice for Humanity Uganda in partnership with Peace Hospice Adjumani will provide much needed fees for specialized investigations like CT scan, mobility aids, counseling, transport support for patients and care givers to Mulago cancer institute as well as meet the immediate basic needs of 56 palliative care patients currently on active care. This will ensure patients have the necessary financial resources to meet the costs of transport and treatment/specialized investigations.

Long-Term Impact

The long term impact of this project will be the overall improvement in the quality of life of patients with terminal illnesses in Adjumani. 56 patients currently enrolled on palliative care will directly benefit from increased access to care and support both at home and at Mulago Cancer Institute.
