Human-Rights, Ethical and Legal Issues in Palliative Care: A Guide for Health Care Providers

By: Ministry of Health Uganda, Palliative Care Association of Uganda, African Palliative Care Association, Uganda Network on Law, Ethics and HIV/AIDS

The Government of Uganda, in collaboration with its partners has developed a simple guide which helps health professionals understand their obligation and role in providing such care. The guide provides insights into common legal and human rights issues they are bound to meet while dealing with patients receiving palliative care and their families and how they can support these patients. The guide offers a list of contacts for legal and human-rights service providers in Uganda that health workers can collaborate with to ensure that the legal and human-rights needs of their patients and their families are met.
