Dr. Angella Namatovu, a recent graduate with a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBChB) from Mbarara University of Science and Technology (MUST), currently serves as the Capacity Building Officer at PCAU. In this role, she significantly contributes to PCAU’s top objective of Capacity Building which is aimed at strengthening the capacity of palliative care providers in Uganda through supporting training, continuous professional education, mentorship, and supervision. Dr. Namatovu is directly engaged in the planning and delivery of the Pain-Free Hospital Initiative (PFHI) at 3 National and Teaching Hospitals in Uganda. She is responsible for PCAU’s SHiNE Child Program which is a pilot initiative on strengthening the care and treatment navigation for children from impoverished families facing health-related suffering.

Before joining PCAU Secretariat as a staff member, Dr. Namatovu volunteered with the association to support the SHiNE Child Program. She was also strongly involved in founding the Students’ Palliative Care Reinforcement Program which aimed to interest students and provide knowledge about Palliative care. Her involvement with PCAU therefore extends beyond her current role, reflecting a history of dedicated volunteer service that demonstrates her devotion to the association’s mission.

Throughout her professional journey, Dr. Namatovu has been actively involved in research and she has also had the privilege of sharing knowledge through presentations at conferences such as the 7th International African Palliative Care Conference and the 4th Uganda Conference on Cancer and Palliative Care. Her contributions significantly advance medical practices and positively impact the lives of countless individuals making her an invaluable member of our team.

What Angella loves about PCAU’s work is the opportunity it provides to positively impact the lives of countless individuals facing challenging health circumstances, as well as the dedicated team that surrounds her. Each member of the team is driven by a shared passion for palliative care and a genuine desire to make a difference in the lives of those we serve. The collaborative environment encourages open dialogue, knowledge sharing, and mentorship, providing her with opportunities to expand her skills and expertise in the field.
