Founded in 2005, Rays of Hope Hospice Jinja (RHHJ) is the only specialized palliative care provider in Uganda's Busoga Region, which covers 10,000 km² and serves a population of 3.5 million people (as of 2014). Our patients primarily suffer from life-limiting diseases such as cancer and severe HIV/AIDS.

In alignment with the United Nations' sustainable development goal for health, which calls for access to healthcare when and where it is needed, without financial hardship, RHHJ expanded its program in 2015. Initially focused on physical pain relief and symptom control, we now adopt a holistic approach that addresses the full spectrum of needs for both patients and their families.

Long distances to health units, primary or more specialized, lack of knowledge at the health units and in the community, lack of medicines and in particular poverty are serious obstacles on the road to health.

Rays of Hope Hospice Jinja has developed a comprehensive program to address these challenges. We believe that access to quality, affordable healthcare is a human right. Our mission is to achieve this goal, fostering healthier individuals, families, and communities in the Busoga Region and beyond.
