Hospice Ethiopia was established in 2003 by Tsigereda Yesfawosen. Tsigereda had the passion to pioneer starting this much needed movement in Ethiopia. Hospice Ethiopia secured its legal personality through a certificate of registration bearing the number 0082. We are a non-governmental and non- profit making organization that is dedicated to the palliative care that is pain management and aspires to support patients who have suffering by total pain in Ethiopia.
Hospice Ethiopia is working to providing palliative care service for our patients and the families, as well as providing palliative care training for health professionals and creating awareness for policy maker and public.
It is our will and conviction that the integration of palliative care into the continuum of care in health services is a real necessity for reducing pain and suffering. This will improve the quality of life among the sick and restore hope.
Hospice Ethiopia is working with hospitals, community based and faith based organization particularly on patient’s referral and awareness creation work. On parallel closely working with the Ministry Of Health (MOH) on improving the palliative care work in the hospital.
