Health is the chief project of NR Foundation. Our major interest is in the health area and to find sustainable solutions to the problem of ongoing health care in Nepal. Its activities in this field include aiming to provide a range of medical outreach services in the most remote areas of Nepal.
The Foundation has recognized the importance of playing a compassionate and active role in improving the health outcomes of those who have little or no access to adequate health care.
As in many areas of Nepal the health services are often either inadequate or not available. In some of the most remote areas there is no health post, no doctors, health workers and hospital available. Villagers may have to travel for many hours on foot to reach a substantial health facility. Treatable diseases often go undiagnosed and untreated. This can lead to preventable death and disabilities. Children and pregnant women are most at risk in the remote areas due to a lack of facilities and education.
