ADVOCACY

Posted by / in What We Do / No comments yet

Together, we are a force for change, understanding and better cancer care. UWOCASO lobbies the government and other major potential donors to recognize the plight of cancer patients in Uganda, and to make significant contributions to address the needs of patients and their families.\r\n\r\nOur current fundraising goals include: supporting patient support and outreach, building a hostel for patients undergoing treatment in Kampala, and procuring a new radiotherapy machine for the Uganda Cancer Institute at Mulago Hospital.\r\n\r\nWe advocate for the development of cancer care in Uganda, and with you joining us, we will be a stronger  force  to advocate for people fighting cancer in our home country. Help us advocate for effective policy and investment in better cancer care to provide a fair chance for every Ugandan citizen to receive good and timely treatment.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n

PATIENT SUPPORT AND COUNSELING

Posted by / in What We Do / No comments yet

Survivors are experts by experience. We visit cancer patients in main hospitals of Kampala and in their homes and to provide navigation through the journey to overcome obstacles and find the best care. We are dedicated to helping you cope with the physical and psychological challenges of cancer and treatment by advising on how to survive and thrive in the Ugandan medical system and beyond.\r\n\r\nWe give you and your loved ones the right information you need to survive, to dispel cancer myths, and sidestep exploitation in Ugandan clinics. We provide educational materials, tell you where to receive free quality treatment and care, share tips on how to manage the treatment’s side effects, and prepare you for all stages of the journey, even after survival to generate a livelihood.\r\n\r\nBreast cancer survivors meet every end of the month to share their journey through breast cancer diagnosis and treatment. These meetings encourage newly diagnosed women to live positively.
