Zipporah Ali started this petition to NHIF Kenya, Minister of Health Kenya

 

NHIF THREATENING TO STOP SUPPORTING HOSPICE AND PALLIATIVE CARE PATIENTS. SAY NO TO THIS! 

Access to pain relief and palliative care is a human right, recognized in the Kenya Health Law and Patients' Right Charter. Despite this, palliative care patients are not covered by our NHIF. Palliative Care patients spend all their income on treatment, sell their belongings  andare left in poverty. 

Thigio Hospice is  one of the two in-patient hospices in Kenya. 95% of their patients are very poor and can not afford to pay for services. Unfortunately NHIF has declared they will no longer support Thigio Hospice and other Hosices. This is devastating. Thigio Hospice will have to close down leaving many in pain and suffering. This is not Right

Please sign this petition to ask NHIF to CONTINUE PAYING  for hospice patients. They are humans too and have a right to NHIF. 

Kenya UHC should also include pain relief and palliative care for out-patients, in-patients and home based care. All patients across all ages matter. 

THEY MATTER!!!
