Palliative care and Human Rights

UGANET has memorandum of understanding with 15 hospitals, hospices and HIV care centers in which our lawyers provide monthly legal aid services to palliative care patients.

Hundreds of palliative care patients continue to loose decision making rights on their properties and health options under the pretext of infirmity.

UGANET experience in legal aid for patients, paint a gloomy picture of high level rights abuses with patients testifying that their poor health situations (and sometimes deaths) are always accelerated by discrimination; isolation and total denial of rights by people around them.
