Nepal 2011 – Himalayan Healing Centre

The Clinic, located in the outskirts of the Kathmandu Valley, continues to offer important basic medical support to the poor and needy of the area. In 2010 a total of 8903 people used the facilities of the Clinic, the majority of who were women (3829). The most used facilities of the Clinic continue to be the dental lab, the reproductive health clinic and general medicine. However, this year saw an increase in the number of people visiting the Tibetan medical clinic and using the DOTS (directly observed tuberculosis treatment) programme. The Clinic also continues as a base for important community health programmes such as the immunization of babies and young children. Thanks to donations received in 2010 by the Association, the Clinic was supplied with a generator (to ensure it could be fully functioning during the daily power cuts), new instruments and enough general materials to support its activities throughout the year.
