Basic medical laboratory for rural health clinic



Karing for Kids Nepal operates a Mother and Child Health Clinic (MCH-Clinic) in the mountain communities of Rasuwa, Nepal. This project will establish a basic medical laboratory within the clinic.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The MCH-Clinic provides basic medical services to 7,000 people in the remote Tamang villages of Gatlang, Goljung, and Chilime. These communities suffer from health problems associated with crippling poverty, such as diarrhea, worm infestation, malnutrition, acute respiratory infections, and tuberculosis. A basic medical lab would have a significant positive impact on our ability to more accurately diagnose and treat these common ailments.

How will this project solve this problem?

Renovate the facility (ceiling, walls, floor, and lighting), acquire furniture, equipment, and supplies, install the new equipment, support annual costs for one year

Potential Long Term Impact

Significantly enchanced capacity to serve critical health needs, exams (blood, urine, stool, acid-fast bacillus, pregnancy, etc.), diagnosis (gastro-intestinal, anemia, kidney problems, diabetes), treatment (medicinal & educational)
