Challenge

There are nearly 7000 people living in the remote villages served by this clinic. Prior to KFK’s Clinic it was difficult to find a mother who had not lost a child and impossible to find a household without a sick person. Child and Maternal Mortality rates of these communities have been almost two-to-three times higher than the national average.

Solution

•Management of childhood illnesses such as diarrhea, worm infestation, malnutrition, and respiratory infections •Immunizations •Antenatal/post natal care • Family planning and counseling •Treatment of sexually transmitted diseases and tuberculosis

Long-Term Impact

Our long term plan as a result of the Healthcare for all Nepal outreach program is to establish four more clinics in strategic locations in the greater Langtang area and provide accessible healthcare to nearly 30 villages.
