Tiyanjane clinic offers in-patient, out-patient and home based care palliative care services to adult patients. The clinic was establised in 2003 at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital (a tertiary referral teaching centre in the Southern Region of Malawi), and since 2005 we have had with a community nursing team based at Ndirande Health Centre under Blantyre District Health Office.
Services are integrated into the government health services as far as possible. Extra support is channeled through the Palliative Care Support Trust which enables us to employ more staff, keep a continuous supply of essential palliative care drugs.
We are active in buildling capacity in palliative care in Malawi, being at the forefront of training medical students and enjoying a variety of cadres who spend time with us on clinical attachments. Please enjoy this short film which outlines some of our work
