Local Hospital Program in Nepal
Medical and Healthcare
Good medical care is a serious problem in rural and urban areas of Nepal. A lot of people have moved to Kathmandu after the civil war to seek better opportunities. This has left much of the city’s public health infrastructure desperately overused. For the poor living in Kathmandu seeing a doctor is simply not an affordable option. Meanwhile in rural areas medical facilities are also in short supply. Main reasons are a poor transportation network and a lack of funding.
