Tibet 2011 – Dispensaries

Until a few years ago in the Dakshu Shang district it was impossible to obtain medical care, nowadays there are small dispensaries working in the area, in particular that of Nye Village – the most important – which has full-time resident doctors. With this in mind the district requested help from the Association for the construction of housing for two doctors and their families. This summer the housing, placed just outside the wall of the clinic, was completed so as to guarantee 24-hour assistance. The clinic also includes rooms and beds for patients and a gynecology department. The treatments are offered at minimal cost, and a register of the estimated 5000 people living in surrounding villages is near to completion. Each person is issued with a health card. Other smaller clinics are active in the villages of Nepu and Singma.
