Annual Grant 2023

Doctors for Nepal aims to improve healthcare in rural Nepal through the provision of medical, nursing and midwifery scholarships and health projects. We award scholarships to students from the lowest socio-economic backgrounds from the underdeveloped far western region of Nepal, where health inequality is at its most extreme. Once they have finished their studies at medical institutions in Nepal, our medics are bonded to return to their remote communities to provide medical care. In this way, we increase manpower in this area, where they are desperately lacking. Today we have built up a dedicated team in Nepal made up of ten doctors, ten nurses, a midwife and seven students, who are keen to work together to improve provision in their home province, where the majority of the population is significantly socioeconomically disadvantaged. The patients benefit hugely from our medics coming from this area, with cultural and language barriers reduced.
