The project "Palliative Care in Mauritania" is to introduce and strengthen palliative care in the Mauritanian health system –Hospitals, clinics, training schools ... - by involving professionals, decision makers, families and volunteers.

The project is a collaboration between CTS, ASSIDE –a Mauritanian association -, Cairdeas -a Scottish International NGO specialized in the introduction of palliative care in the Global South- and Cairdeas Sahara - the project team you can follow on www.facebook.com / CairdeasSahara-.

Activities focus on the capital Nouakchott, working closely with the National Centre of Oncology. We’re expanding operations throughout the country through trainings of nurses and following 4 localities.
