Dr Emmanuel Luyirika - African Palliative Care Association, Kampala, Uganda

Dr Luyirika meets with ecancer at AORTIC 2017 to discuss provision of palliative care across Africa.

He describes national differences in palliative care programs, from language to resource distribution, and highlights opioid access as an example of unmet need.

Dr Luyirika outlines the national plans for education and delivery of care, noting that pace and funding of palliative care need to be increased

ecancer has developed e-learning courses for palliative care training in African contexts, available here.
