The Fami Foundation, with the support of Geneva University Hospitals (HUG), launched the Palliative Patient Care Project in December 2016. In Bosnia and Herzegovina, elderly patients with chronic illnesses, disabled
or terminally ill patients remain at home with little support or need to be hospitalized. Most of these patients are in the final stages of their lives and their family cares of them. Terminally ill patients
and their families need support to cope with this. The minimum part of medical intervention is provided by health centers, certain specialists or does not exist at all. In municipalities where family medicine
is applied, it is possible to establish a palliative care network through the work of existing family medicine teams in the community. Community primary care teams can provide excellent care for dying patients
and allow patients to be treated in the home when they are given good access to specialist services, support and expertise.
