Cote d'Ivoire (population 17.33 million) is a country in Western Africa that covers an area of 322, 460 km2. There are no established palliative care services in the country. Although some health professionals in Cote d'Ivoire are familiar with the use of morphine for cancer and neurological pain, there has yet to be a coordinated and structured plan to incorporate managed pain control into the public health system. The President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) is described. No palliative care training has been implemented in Cote d'Ivoire. The chapter presents the history and development of hospice-palliative care in Cote d'Ivoire. The narrative history of palliative care, life/oral histories, public health context, health care system, and political economy are specifically discussed.

Keywords:   Cote d'Ivoire, palliative care, hospice, morphine, public health, health care system, political economy
