Summary

Your donation will help us conclude a fundraiser to acquire a new vehicle that will facilitate our team's travels to the 40 remaining districts in Uganda without hospice and palliative care services. Our old vehicle of 12 years is no longer able to take us to the remaining poor and rural communities to establish palliative care teams, conduct mentorship, support supervision, and streamline access to pain relief medicines for people facing serious health-related suffering due to severe illnesses.

Challenge

There are 40 districts with at least 20% of Uganda's total population without hospice and palliative care services. The health units in these mostly rural areas with poor residents lack trained health workers and do not stock essential medicines for relieving pain among individuals facing cancers and other life-limiting illnesses. Individuals in need have to travel at least over 20 miles for care and many die in pain and excruciating suffering. We want to establish palliative units there.

Solution

Once PCAU acquires a new strong vehicle, it will endure rough terrain, allowing professional staff to reach corners of the country while raising awareness and advocating for hospice and palliative care services. after equipping the remote district officials with palliative care knowledge, PCAU staff will support the establishment of palliative care teams, conduct mentorship, support supervision, streamline access to pain relief medicines, and ensure the sustainable partnerships.

Long-Term Impact

In the next 2 years, PCAU will raise awareness, train health workers, offer mentorship, conduct support supervision, support to establish palliative care teams, and streamline access to essential medicines including Oral Liquid morphine in 40 districts. This will reduce the travel distance for individuals in need of care, bring pain relief, reduce health-related suffering, heal families, and transform communities. The service points will sustainably be owned and facilitated by communities.
