  • Mô tả: The paper in today's Lancet by Richard Harding and Irene Higginson is timely and useful. They are reporting on palliative care in sub-Saharan Africa. We on the ground have little time for reviewing current literature, and they report on strengths and weaknesses of palliative care. Palliative care services in Africa mainly sprang from the identification of suffering and an urgent need to meet the needs of, initially, cancer patients and in more recent years those with HIV/AIDS (Garanganga E, HARARE, Zimbabwe, and Gwyther L, Capetown, South Africa, personal communications; and our experiences at Nairobi Hospice and Hospice Uganda1-5). Harding and Higginson's main thrust is the need for monitoring and evaluation of services. Indeed, this ongoing activity is essential if palliative care is to go forward.
