“We believe that medical care is a basic human right; that no individual should suffer or die just because he or she is too poor to pay for it.”
The current state of the Nepali health care system is inadequate to meet even the basic requirements of its people. Even easily preventable diseases such as diarrhoea, malnutrition and acute respiratory infections account for 95% of all under-five mortality and morbidity. Despite this alarming scenario the fact remains that there exists no public health insurance system.
We have been working in Kathmandu since 1957, and we have tried to ease this critical situation by providing basic medical care to the poor and to the underprivileged. We also aim to help improve medical diagnosis and treatment in Nepal.
We have campaigned to increase public awareness and responsibility so as to improve the living conditions of the underprivileged by educating them about health and hygiene.
We regularly conduct special health camps in rural areas to reach out to people who live without the comforts of basic healthcare and sanitation facilities.
To accomplish our ambitious goals, we are dependent upon both public and private support.
Motto:”Affordable quality health care for all, free to the underprivileged only.”
