Tiyanjane Clinic is a palliative care clinic, set up in July 2003 for people living with HIV & AIDS following their discharge from the medical wards at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital (QECH) in Blantyre.
By establishing links between hospital and Community, the clinic is able to give patients the care and support that they need to live positive lives.

QECH is the largest health service provider in the southern part of Malawi. An estimated 70% of the patients admitted to the medical wards are HIV infected and when discharged, many people remain chronically ill and require continued care at home.
EMMS International has provided funds for staff and volunteer training and for the hosting of Malawi’s first Palliative Care conference. Much of the funding was raised by the trekkers on our sponsored Sinai Trek in 2006.
‘Tiyanjane’ is a Chichewa word (Malawi’s main language) meaning ‘Let us come together’.
