Palliative care; what do you really mean?
‘Palliative Care' was unknown in Malawi until Dr. Anne Merriman visited in 2002 and introduced the concept. HIV/AIDS care and treatment services gradually grasped this philosophy of care, palliative care champions studied for post-graduate qualifications, health care workers gained extra skills, and a national voice for stakeholders was established in 2005.
