To ensure the promotion and provision of support for quality palliative care throughout Rwanda, the Palliative Care Association of Rwanda (PCAR) focuses on three A’s: acceptable, accessible, and affordable. With its headquarters located in Kigali, the national association aims to integrate many palliative care services into already existing health systems by developing policy, training health professionals, and advocating for pain management medicine. Much of their work focuses on creating awareness and policy change for palliative care. Rather than focusing on care for patients, they focus on building the health system infrastructure needed to ensure palliative care is available to all in Rwanda. They hope that in entering a partnership, these initiatives will be carried out effectively and eventually lead to institutional capacity building.
