PHASE Nepal works in remote and isolated areas of Nepal supporting free primary health care, livelihood and education improvement, supporting PWDs, disaster risk reduction, research and now Covid-19 response. PHASE Nepal provides direct health services to more than 90,000 patients/year in remote Humla, Mugu, Bajura, Sindhupalchok and Gorkha. Thus, this project aims to save lives of health workers and community workers by supporting their treatment incase of possible infection & complications.
PHASE Nepal team provided providing such as basic primary health care, safe motherhood care, livelihoods improvement, food security, and many other community development activities, even in the middle of COVID-19 pandemic in most needy and remote locations of Nepal. PHASE Nepal's aim is to ensure the treatment of its health workers and the team so that it can continue to provide services to the more vulnerable. PHASE Nepal has started a fund of $5000 and aims to reach $50000 fund for initiative.
This project aims to provide treatment and hospitalization support for frontline health workers, community facilitators, and the management team in remote areas. In case they contract severe infections while working in low-resource settings, this assurance ensures uninterrupted health services and community work in remote villages. The fund is dedicated to assisting staff during times of serious illness, infection, or accidents, enabling timely rescue and treatment support.
This project will enable PHASE to set up an emergency treatment fund which it plans to develop as a permanent fund. In addition to providing treatment and hospitalization support, the long-term fund will also provide lifesaving support such as airlifting of women with complicated deliveries from remote areas. Therefore, in the long run, it will not just be an organization's fund it will be the fund for the PHASE's remote working communities to support in health emergencies.
