‘ecancer’ has just published a special issue providing an update on rapidly evolving developments in palliative cancer care in Africa. The collection of five original articles highlights examples of models in service delivery and policy development which countries across the continent have initiated. “The key challenge here is that many African countries have either not developed national palliative care policies, or have palliative care missing in the other national documents and policies related to cancer care,” explains guest editor Dr Emmanuel Luriyika of the African Palliative Care Association, Uganda.
