Critical to palliative care development care stakeholders who contribute to the advancement of palliative care through capacity and evidence building, service delivery and implementation, and policy formulation. This strategic pillar focuses heavily on engaging all the stakeholders and allies of palliative care at all levels to support palliative care advancement.
KEHPCA will be strengthened to take lead in the coordination role working with the ministry of health and other stakeholders to drive palliative care in line with global and national guidelines and frameworks.Successful implementation of this Strategic Plan requires a multi-sectoral approach and collaboration among stakeholders. Though primarily driven by KEHPCA, the implementation of the Strategic Plan rests with multiple stakeholders which KEHPCA will link with on a time to time basis.
This strategic pillar seeks to empower individuals to make informed decisions about their health and co-participate meaningfully in the production and access to palliative care that responds to their needs. Through relaying tailored and appropriate Information, Education, and Awareness, we provide knowledge, capability, opportunity, and resources that people and communities need to be articulate a demand-driven for quality palliative care services.
Good governance and management structures are crucial in providing credibility and accountability including the efficient use of funds to provide care and potentially increased access to donor funding. KEHPCA believes that addressing financial challenges and identifying real opportunities for change will strengthen its organisational development, especially its financial sustainability. Strengthen accountability and effectiveness by promoting the implementation of key KEHPCA policy guidelines and ensuring compliance.
