Public Health and Medical Care

The Medical Care Situation in Nepal

Good medical care is a serious problem in rural and urban areas of Nepal. A lot of people have moved to Kathmandu after the civil war to seek better opportunities. This has left much of the city’s public medical infrastructure desperately overused. For the poor, seeing a doctor is simply not an affordable option. Meanwhile, in rural areas health facilities are in short supply. Main reasons are a poor transportation network and a lack of funding.
