PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Nepal faces several pressing health issues, many of which exist due to its geography, socioeconomic challenges, and limited healthcare infrastructure.

With non-communicable diseases, mental health, nutritional deficiencies and environmental health issues, our Health Promotion projects are vital for raising awareness and improving health education amongst the community. By raising awareness of these issues, our goal is to build community capacity and impact overall health.
