2016 begins with a new drive to raise support for students at IHPCA (Institute for Hospice and Palliative Care in Africa).

Each year The Institute receives many applications from students who meet the entrance qualifications and who can be provisionally offered places.

Most students cannot fund themselves and only a small proportion of students are funded by government health services. As a result many of the applicants struggle to find funding to support their proposed studies and a significant proportion fail. We are looking to raise funds for student bursaries for fees and for travel expenses (air fares and subsistence) especially for non-Ugandan students.

Funding a student today is a key investment in spreading palliative care.
