PCAU is working with UGANET to foster Social Justice for Palliative Care Patients in need in Uganda. PCAU has continued to partner with Uganda Network on Law, Ethics and HIV/AIDs (UGANET) to promote palliative care as a human right. This has been done through sensitization on Palliative Care for lecturers and students and support to lawyers to offer legal support to patients.
In 2010, PCAU working with the Uganda Network on Law Ethics and HIV AIDS (UGANET) and with support from the African Palliative Care Association, The Open Society Foundations and the Open Society Initiative for East Africa started the work of promoting palliative care as a Human Right in Uganda. Various stakeholders have been brought on board since then. In 2017, the Uganda Human Rights Commission reported on the Right to Palliative Care for the first time in their 20th Annual report.
