Media sensitisation workshop held in Uganda

Categories: In The Media.

The workshop was organised by the Palliative Care Association of Uganda (PCAU), with support from the African Palliative Care Association (APCA), and was attended by 14 participants editors and journalists, mostly those reporting on health issues.

In an article on the Africa edition of ehospice, Sylvia Nakami, the Programmes Manager at PCAU, explains: “The media have an important role in raising the profile of palliative care, especially as a human right. Effective use of the media is a critical tool that PCAU has taken on to use to raise awareness about palliative care in Uganda.”

It is hoped that the workshop will lead to palliative care gaining more space in newspapers and TV airtime, helping to raise awareness around important palliative care issues.
