MOHP Skills Lab Handover to NAMS: June 2017

July 18, 2017 - 

Despite many programs related to women’s health, including those promoting institutional deliveries, safe motherhood, capacity building of skilled birth attendants, etc., Nepal’s maternal mortality rate has not seen significant improvement within the last five years, going from 281 deaths per 100,000 live births in 2011 to 258 deaths per 100,000 live births in 2016 (NDHS, 2016). Although government and NGO programs have helped reduce the maternal mortality rate, the target for 2017, i.e. the Second Long-Term Health Plan (1997-2017) goal of no more than 250 deaths per 100,000 live births, was not achieved. Nepal’s infant mortality rate has...

Approval Received for 5-year Health Care System Strengthening and Outreach Program: Q1 2017

June 19, 2017 - 

A year has passed since RMF started operating a health clinic in Arupokhari, Gorkha. During this time period, the clinic has treated many patients with different health problems. What began as a small initiative with a small budget and a steadfast commitment from RMF and the local community has grown into a lifesaving, easily accessible, much-needed health solution for the community. Before RMF operated the clinic, the nearest health post was about 4–5 hours away, and any health facilities were few and far between. Now through RMF’s initiative, the people of Arupokhari and neighboring villages have access to...

Providing Needed Equipment and Materials to Support Midwifery Education: Q1 2017

June 14, 2017 - 

The April 2015 earthquake damaged or destroyed up to 90% of health facilities in many rural areas, affecting 2 million women of reproductive age and over 126,000 pregnant women. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), over 85% of urban pregnancies are over medicalized in Nepal. However, only 16% to 18.6% of Nepal’s population lives in its cities, and many rural areas are deprived of professional midwifery services, modern medicines, and access to surgery. When pregnancy complications arise, this lack of proper care leads to the death of the mother and child in most cases. Nepal’s...

Construction Partner Chosen: Q1 2017

June 12, 2017 - 

Lumbini is not among the earthquake hit regions and is situated in western Nepal. The program was selected by RMF’s team because of its strong alignment with our motto, “Liberating Human Potential.” Although the region is only 205 km west of the capital city, Kathmandu, the treatment of women in Lumbini is astonishing. The region has the lowest female literacy rate in Nepal, at just 18%. This is a clear indication of gender bias and discouragement of women’s education and growth.

RMF has joined hands with Karuna Girls’ School, which provides education for girls from grades...

June 12, 2017 - 

Kanti Children’s Hospital provides free health services to financially challenged patients, there are always constraints with regard to the availability of funds, which makes it challenging to provide medical support to every child that is referred to the hospital. Recently, the hospital development board decided to upgrade the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) from 8 beds to 52 beds. The hospital has also started a triage area in the Emergency Unit.

Shortly after the April 2015 earthquake, Real Medicine Foundation started its support of Kanti Children’s Hospital by donating $408,000 worth of medicines, medical supplies, and laboratory supplies...

Comprehensive Planning Completed for 9 Schools: January-April 2017

April 14, 2017 - 

The district of Sindhupalchok, Nepal was one of the areas hit hardest by the April 2015 earthquake: more than 2,000 people died, many were injured, and the vast majority of houses, schools, and medical facilities were destroyed or rendered uninhabitable. In Bhotenamlang, the hometown of Maya Gurung (one of the founders of Seven Summits Women), there was not 1 house left intact. Sindhupalchok district was already known for sex-trafficking, lack of education, and discrimination against women, and the earthquake’s destruction meant that these problems would only grow worse.
