Dear Supporters,

        In this update we would like to share a good news that our frontline staff specially health workers have got an opportunity to receive the 1st dose of Covid- 19 vaccine (Oxford/AstraZeneca COVID-19 ). Here is a short note of thanks from the PHASE Nepal's Executive Director Dr. Jiban Karki

Special note from the Execute Director.

          I would like to express my sincere thanks and heartfelt appreciation to Nepal Government, Ministry of Health, Department of Health Services and its line agencies in the province, districts and local levels, hospitals, primary health care centres and health posts for providing an opportunity to get the 1st dose of covid-19 vaccine to PHASE Nepal's health staff and frontline workers.

          By the first week of March, 123 members of PHASE staff and the Executive Board have already received the vaccine in the 1st round. I hope the remaining 38 members from the staff and the Executive Board will also get the vaccinations soon. We are further motivated to continue our work to strengthen the primary health care services in hard-to¬reach areas and vulnerable communities further supporting them with better education, livelihoods, disaster resilience, and research initiatives.

We are also grateful to all of our supporters in this difficult time.

-Dr. Jiban Karki, Executive Director and PHASE Nepal family

       This recognition and support from the government has been possible because of your genereous contribution in our project activities. Your support enabled us to play the role of one of the lead NGOs to providing esential health services in the remote himalayan communities, thus being recognized as the team eligible to receive the vaccine in the first lot.

        Although the 1st dose of vaccines has been provided the risk of infection is always there expecially when the cases are rising in our neighbouring countries like India at the moment. Therefore, we have been extremely careful and have been maintaining strick protocols in running the project activities in the communities such as wearing a mask, making the partipants wear a mask , maintaining social distancing and hand sanitizing. 

        PHASE Nepal will continue to provide its essential services in the remote communities and expresses thanks to all the donors who have contributed to this project to set up funds to support the front line healthworkers.
