Hospaz Palliative Care
HOSPAZ Palliative Care
The principal approaches for HOSPAZ over the years have focused mainly on partnership and strategic alliances and standardisation of care processes and methods to ensure that the association remain relevant and in line with global, regional and national trends and expectations whilst enhancing the effectiveness of its interventions. HOSPAZ recognizes the need for continued engagement of policy makers, government and other key stakeholders in ensuring that palliative care is clearly understood and integrated in the national health system. In the past fifteen years, HOSPAZ has complemented government in the training of health professionals in palliative care and development of frameworks, policies, tools and other materials that enhance the implementation of palliative care in Zimbabwe.
HOSPAZ’s primary target group is children (OVC, living with disability, living with illness) and adults with life threatening illnesses and their families. The other target group includes policy makers, Community Based Organisations (CBOs), Faith Based Organisations (FBOs) and Non-governmental Organisations (NGOs) implementing comprehensive prevention, treatment, care and support interventions in Zimbabwe.
