This report details the clinical visits made, meetings held, and teaching carried out during a three week visit to Addis Ababa in March & April 2017. These were conducted on behalf of Hospice Ethiopia UK (the newly registered UK charity formerly known as the Norwich group supporting Hospice Ethiopia) and the International Consortium.
The visit was planned and carried out by Sue Mumford (SM; Community Specialist Palliative Care Nurse and Chair of Hospice Ethiopia UK) and Dr James Mumford (JM; General Practitioner, UK) who funded themselves. The overall aims of the trip were accomplished although some plans had to be deferred to a later visit, for example teaching nurses at Cancer Care Ethiopia, and visiting a Palliative Care hub. However in addition to activities planned JM and SM were delighted to attend Hospice Ethiopia’s General Assembly meeting
