HEALTH

Millions of people in Nepal lack access to adequate food, water, sanitation, medicine and education. Despite breakthroughs in medical sciences and health services around the world, people in Nepal continue to face unnecessary suffering due to reasons that include climate change, economic crisis and poor governance. Access to clean water, sanitation and basic health facilities are the immediate needs of citizens in rural areas.

Today’s health challenges require a concentrated approach from all parts of the society towards improving the well-being of the citizens. BSDI works to change the lives of the poor and impoverished by reshaping household health. We do this through providing education programs, health camps, training, and technical support as well as resources needed for the achievement of equity in health in rural areas of the country.
