Health issues remain at the forefront of HRH the Nnabagereka’s agenda. HRH has for 15 years focused on, amongst others, health issues. In May 2014 the World Health Assembly sitting in Geneva passed a landmark Resolution which declared that all signatory countries, including Uganda, make Palliative Care a global health priority. The Nnabagereka recognises that Palliative Care is a human right and an urgent humanitarian responsibility. In addition to the many roles she plays HRH chose to show remarkable dedication and amazing courage when HAU invited her to become the organisation’s Patron, and a champion to highlight the plight of thousands of patients with life-limiting illnesses for whom improvement of quality of life is a principal goal.
HRH has visited the sickest patients in their homes, and has commiserated with bereaved family members when their loved ones have died.
HRH and the Nnabagereka Development Foundation demonstrate everyday a spirit of mindfulness for less fortunate persons which are the ethos of Hospices in Africa. In HAU patients are the centre of our love and care.
HAU is proud that this year HRH and the NDF invited the organisation to participate in the Ekisaakaate and at an outreach in Masaka to educate the community about Palliative Care. It is only through community awareness that persons can learn about the benefits of Palliative care and the location of these essential services in over 90 districts countrywide.
HAU Board, Management, Team members, patients and their families convey their gratitude to HRH for becoming the organisation’s Patron, and for giving her strong voice to the noble cause of Palliative Care in Uganda.
