PACAM organised a Children Palliative Care Empowerment Workshop for Northern Region at Mzuzu Central Hospital. Participants to the workshop were children on palliative care and their guardians from Mzuzu and Nkhata Bay. The main topic for the day was sickle cell anaemia as 67% of these patients have sickle cell anaemia.
Four children shared their experiences on how they have benefited from the project. The main challenge was that they have to travel a long way to get medications. Their plea is to have medication available in health centres where they live. As of now, the drugs are only available at the central hospital
