The Gilchrist Global Partnership is part of a larger effort, supported by the national Global Partners in Care, to support end of life care in developing countries. Gilchrist’s partnership with Nkoaranga Lutheran Hospital’s Hospice and Palliative Care program is one of more than 80 linking end of life care organizations in the United States with palliative care programs outside our borders.

Nkoaranga serves about 900 terminally-ill patients daily in the rugged, mountainous Arusha region of Tanzania, which continues to be hit hard by the AIDS epidemic. Through our partnership, Gilchrist provides the financial support that allows Nkoaranga to continue to operate and expand to meet the needs of its patients. In addition, Nkoaranga staff have visited Baltimore, and Gilchrist staff have visited Tanzania in an effort to better understand how each of us provides care.
