IMPROVING HEALTHCARE IN RURAL NEPAL
The aim of Doctors For Nepal is to improve healthcare in rural Nepal by empowering impoverished students to serve as doctors, nurses and midwives in their isolated rural communities
We provide scholarships to under-privileged medical, nursing and midwifery students, who then return to their remote communities to provide desperately needed medical care.
