The unique needs of children with life-limiting illnesses and dying children are particularly evident across Africa, where the scale of the problem is overwhelming and the figures so enormous that they are barely comprehensible: over 400, 000 children in Africa died from AIDS in 2003, and out of the 166, 000 children a year diagnosed with cancer, 84% of these are in the developing world. Despite the enormous need, provision of children\'s palliative care in Africa is almost non-existent, with very few health workers trained and confident enough to provide care for dying children. The challenges of providing palliative care in this setting are different to those in more developed countries, contending with the shortage of physical and human resources in addition to the vast scope of the care needed.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:description<\/a> \"The basics of children\'s palliative care -- Symptom control in children\'s palliative care -- Holistic care -- Bringing it all together: caring at the end of life -- Caring for yourself -- Children\'s palliative care formulary for Africa.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/194899027<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:name<\/a> \"Children\'s palliative care in Africa<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:productID<\/a> \"317473190<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:publication<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/317473190#PublicationEvent\/oxford_new_york_oxford_university_press_2009<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:publisher<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/194899027#Agent\/oxford_university_press<\/a>> ; # Oxford University Press<\/span>\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9780199567966<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0umbel:isLike<\/a> <http:\/\/bnb.data.bl.uk\/id\/resource\/GBA938907<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0wdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/317473190<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.<\/div>
