PCAU seeks to increase awareness and understanding of Palliative Care issues among stakeholders and to create a supportive environment for the providers and the services.

Below are the major activities under the Advocacy and Awareness Creation focus area currently;

PCAU is pushing for the passing of the National Palliative Care Policy that will contain the standards, policies and procedures as far as palliative care services in Uganda is concerned.

PCAU continues to advocate for each health care institution to have a share of the national health budget assigned to Palliative Care. In this, PCAU also continues to lobby for increase of the national budget for palliative care each year through collaboration with the MoH in the budgeting process.

PCAU continues to monitor in all accredited health facilities and facilitate morphine availability and utilization by working with national manufacturers and distributors to ensure availability, access and use. PCAU also organizes and coordinates bi-monthly meetings with morphine partners. The Partners are Ministry of Health, Hospice Africa Uganda (HAU), National Medical Stores (NMS), Palliative Care Association of Uganda (PCAU), Joint Medical Store (JMS), Mulago National Referral Hospital-Central pharmacy, National Drug Authority (NDA), Makerere Palliative Care Unit (MPCU) and Uganda Cancer Institute. The meetings are key in generating mechanisms for continuous improvement in Morphine Supply Chain.

Palliative Care services in Uganda are in about 108 districts. 10 district Advocacy Workshops will be conducted, to cover all112 districts. Districts which do not yet have PC services will be prioritized over those with established services. These workshops will target district and hospital senior managers and will include study visits to established model sites.

PCAU coordinates bi annual country team meetings that are hosted at the Ministry of Health and attended by the key decision makers and implementers of Palliative Care in the country. The meetings are key in making strategic decisions for palliative care services in Uganda.

Community engagement and sensitization is done by hosting meetings on the use and presence of palliative care services in Uganda. It is also done though involving the public in PCAU activities such as Soccer galas, Biennial conferences and annual dinner.
