Nepal is a country in South Asia, home to eight of the world's highest mountains including Mount Everest. It is one of the poorest countries globally.
We started supporting the village Thokarpa in the hilly district of Sindhupalchok in 2017. A primary care center is being constructed and will be run as a collaboration between the local government, Kathmandu Medical College and the non-governmental organization Sweden Nepal Society.
We provide additional technical, human resource and financial support. For example, we finance the education of a nurse who will work in the future health centre, and support a public health project focusing on the use of menstrual cups.
