Palliative Care Program

Palliative care, with the overall aim of relieving suffering and promoting quality of life for those who are terminally ill, was introduced at Mulanje Mission Hospital in 2003.

The program offers care to AIDS sufferers and those with cancer or other terminal illnesses, and works closely with other services such as the ART and Home Based Care (HBC) programs. A daily outpatient clinic is held at MMH, and many patients are cared for in their homes and communities by HBC volunteers.
