Access Health Care Nepal is very excited about our collaboration with AMDA (Association of Medical Doctors) Nepal. AMDA is an collection of 33 doctors and runs three hospitals, as well as several other programs and projects in collaboration with other organizations. AMDA is located mostly in the eastern regions of the country, and has committed to supporting AHCN as we target Rukum district in western Nepal.
AMDA has supplied our health camp with medication donations so that we can conduct general health check ups. After supplying basic medical care and treatment, we will test for HIV since migrant families are at high risk of contracting STIs in northern India.
Our team left Jumlakhalanga today and will be continuing on foot. They had great meetings with district officers in Jumlakhalanga to discuss the health care needs in Rukum and the potential for biomedical engineering assistance through partnerships with Engineering World Health. They will most likely not have access to the Internet until they return next week, so we will continue to update as best we can until the end of the health camp.
Please continue to share our story and encourage people to support our cause. Our goal is to have finished our fundraising campaign by the time the health camp is over. Thank you for your continued support.
