Advocacy and patient support
UWHI has been a source of start-up financial support for the Uganda Women’s Cancer Support Organisation (UWOCASO).
Funding has been provided for various developments and activities, including supporting cancer patients through diagnosis and treatment, setting up and maintaining an office and awareness-raising events.
UWOCASO was founded in 2004 by five women cancer sufferers. Their important work is recognised by the Ministry of Health in Uganda and they’re planning to take expand their programmes across the country.
