The African Palliative Care Association (APCA) is a pan-African membership organisation located in Kampala Uganda. The organisation exists to ensure that palliative care is widely understood, integrated into health systems at all levels and underpinned by evidence to reduce pain and suffering associated with life-limiting illnesses across Africa. Palliative care is a field of health which prevents pain and suffering (physical, psychological, social and spiritual) associated with serious chronic life limiting illnesses such as cancer and HIV/AIDS.  The organisation currently has 4,055 individual and 1900 institutional members. APCA works through a network of national, regional and international partnerships.
