Challenge

Hard to reach mountainous areas of Karnali region, Sindhupalchok and Gorkha have an increasing number of covid-19 infections, with the infected developing severe symptoms. As of 23-05-2021, 160 people have been infected and 1 have already died in these areas. Because of the lack of covid related essential medication, equipment and set-ups and staff the people are suffering and even dying because of the lack of services. These areas are at the distance of 4-5 days of walk from nearest bus-roads.

Solution

PHASE Nepal with its existing Himalayan Healthcare project has 35 health staff and 31 support on these sites providing primary health care and maternity services. The same team, with the local government, will set up isolation centers in these remote communities and provide the medical care. Essentials like oxygen concentrators, medicines, antigen testing kits, sanitizers and PPE will be immediately purchased and sent to these areas.

Long-Term Impact

This will save lives of covid infected people with basic isolation set-ups having medication and oxygen facilities and prevent the further spread protecting these underserved families and communities from the devastating effects of the pandemic. Pregnant, lactating women, children, elderly and persons with disabilities will be given utmost care in infection prevention as well as isolation care in case of infection. The project will potentially save the communities for a safe and healthy future.
