Challenge

Villagers in rural Nepal often have limited access to professional health care. Health posts are few and far between, may not always be fully staffed, and require hours of walking for many people to reach. ETC has long promoted the increased use of rural health posts, which are very valuable resources despite their limitations, but we also seek to increase preventive measures available to villagers, and help them cope more effectively with minor ailments at home and in their schools.

Solution

Through ETC's provision of training and resources, offered at no cost to the beneficiaries, thousands of people in rural Nepal will have greater opportunity to improve their personal health and environmental hygiene. This will prevent some health problems before they begin and mitigate other, relatively minor issues before they can become more serious health problems that require professional intervention.

Long-Term Impact

Families, schools, and entire communities will benefit from improved individual and public health and environmental cleanliness. Direct beneficiaries will include hundreds of women and their families, and 30 schools with some 4,400 enrolled students and hundreds of teachers/staff members.
