Health Care

The small health centers in many VDCs are without Auxiliary Health Workers (AHWs), Auxiliary Nurse Midwives (ANMs) and Community Health Workers (CHWs). So, people seeking emergency health assistance have to travel a long distance to the district headquarters or Kathmandu or end up dying because of lack of treatment. Many people still believe in Dhami and Jhakri and don't always seek medicine or go to the hospital for the treatment. An NGO, PHASE Nepal provides many health care facilities and training programs to Ryale, a VDC of Kavrepalanchok District.[2]

Currently PHASE Nepal is working on several projects in this district including community health and education, livelihood, hygiene and sanitation programmes.
