Our Partners
Open Times: 8am and 04:30pm

Much of the success behind developing palliative care in and around Blantyre relies on the development and maintenance of local, national and international partnerships. Locally we work with Ministry of Health (Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital and various district level services) and the College of Medicine. Nationally we work with the Palliative Care Association of Malawi and other regulatory bodies such as Central Medical Stores and the Pharmacy, Medicine and Poisons board as well as other palliative care services providers. Internationally we are mentored by Hospice Africa, Uganda as well as receiving financial support from a variety of donors.
