AHCN in Rukum #4 – Getting there and Team Profiles

As some of you may have read, the current AHCN effort in Nepal is comprised of three phases:  1) documenting the health care needs of rural Nepal, 2) conducting rigorous in-field medical, biomedical engineering and public health research 3) providing sustainable solutions for rural health care services and financing hereof in regions of interest.

Of these, our project in Rukum makes up the first phase. In the following days we will post about from our work in Rukum. This first post is a collection of photos of getting from Kathmandu to Rukum. This took three days as we had several stops on the way: the first day we visited Chitwan Medical College Teaching Hospital and agreed to collaborate in this project and in the future.

ACCESS HEALTH CARE IN RUKUM NEPAL #2

It’s not always easy to conduct health projects in a country with an infrastructure like Nepal.

The last two days the AHCR has had meetings with Professor at Chitwan Medical College, Dr. Harish Chandra Neupane and Mr. Nirmal Rimal, project coordinator at AMDA Nepal. Both have shown a great support of our work. We are truly thankful for the guidance of Dr. Harish and Mr. Nirmal Rimal!

Furthermore AHCR has initiated a collaboration with Mr. Nirmal Rimal of AMDA-Nepal and through them, we will assist the Nepali Red Cross in Rukum to perform HIV/AIDS tests of the people we will treat.
