Kenya Hospices and Palliative Care Association honoured

KEHPCA was among 10 winners chosen from more than 1400 nominees from around the world.

Kenya Hospices and Palliative Care Association (KEHPCA) was honored with a Red Ribbon Award in the Treatment, Care and Support category during the XIX International AIDS Conference in Washington DC on Wednesday, July 25.

The Red Ribbon Award is presented every 2 years at the AIDS conference to recognize and celebrate community-based organizations for their exemplary initiatives that display leadership in reducing the spread and impact of HIV/AIDS.

KEHPCA is a national association that represents all palliative care service providers in Kenya. Its mission is to scale up palliative care services to bridge a significant gap between those who receive services and those in need.

KEHPCA is a partner of Foundation for Hospices in Sub-Saharan Africa (FHSSA), an affiliate of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization.
