Palliative Care Centers in Kenya

What is Palliative Care?

Palliative care is an approach that improves the quality of life of patients facing problems associated with a life-threatening illness, through the prevention and relief of suffering by means of early identification and impeccable assessment, treatment of pain, and holistic treatment of other problems including the physical, psychosocial and spiritual. A key component of Palliative care is the support of families and caregivers.

Palliative Care for Children


Palliative care for children (Paediatric palliative care)represents a special, albeit closely related field to adult palliative care. It is a method for delivering competent, compassionate and consistent care to children with chronic, complex and/or life-threatening conditions and their families.

Pediatric Palliative Care does not aim to cure the disease but to prevent suffering and improve the quality of life for Kenya’s youngest terminally ill patients, aged 0-16. Pediatric Palliative Care can be delivered at home, in a hospice, or a hospital, and focuses on treating pain and other physical symptoms, providing psychosocial support, and complementary care and treatment to children suffering life-limiting illnesses and their families and carers.
