Make a difference

By channelling your investment into innovative health initiatives, you can use your resources as a force for good – alleviating avoidable suffering one family and community at a time.

The current situation

In low-resource communities in Ghana, the lack of palliative care means that patients with life-limiting illnesses are too often left to die an isolated, painful and undignified death.

“The desire to care for dying loved ones is universal but access to palliative and end-of-life care in Ghana is not.” – Dr Cecilia Akrisie Anim CBE, FRSA, FRCN

“Many families can face loss of income, disruption to education and personal anguish and anxiety, directly trapping them and future generations into cycles of poverty.” – Mr Ernest Ahiaku MB, FRCS,FGCPS, DL

Our mission

Working through local communities and trusted institutions, our mission is to reduce suffering and hardship in resource-poor communities by enabling Ghanaians to embed end-of-life care excellence into existing healthcare systems.

Our work and impact

By bringing clinical learning, innovation, education and research we help embed world-leading standards of palliative care into Ghana’s healthcare ecosystem. Self-reliance is a key part of this as we give communities the skills and capability required to deliver palliative care for all. We educate, empower and collaborate to drive positive systematic change.

Education icon

Educate through research

We promote education, research and the advancement of clinical and traditional knowledge
in the field of palliative and end-of-life care, particularly in resource-poor communities, to further the quality and impact of care.

Communication icon

Empower through training

We facilitate needs-based training in palliative care for professionals, patients, family caregivers, families and institutions enabling them to become confident and as self-reliant as reasonably practicable in their interventions.

Communities icon

Collaboration through partnerships

We support and collaborate with other healthcare and community organisations in Ghana and the surrounding region, working collectively to improve and embed quality palliative Care.

Our Innovative model

In line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) of No Poverty (Goal 1) and Good Health and Well Being (Goal 3) we are working alongside other healthcare and community organisations to develop an innovative hub and spoke model that integrates the highest standards of palliative care into existing systems.
