AGNAHP has long supported the home hospice service operated by this foundation. Its team of three palliative care nurses, one of whom trained in the UK through AGNAHP’s brokerage,, provides home hospice care throughout Guyana: the only organisation to do so.
AGNAP empathises with this philosophy and has long maintained an annual donation to help with the purchase of medications, including essential palliatives, for this service. It is now over ten years since its president, Claremont Lye wrote, “The extent of AGNAHP’s involvement has ensured that almost every Beacon hospice patient dies without pain. This cannot be overstated.” Since the service now has access to more efficient palliatives, AGNAHP has now increased its annual subvention.
