News from Dr Lalit

Lalit is currently working in a remote district hospital in Rukum District in mid-western Nepal.  Here’s what he says about his work:

Lalit carrying out a caesarean section

“I am working with the government’s comprehensive Emergency Obstetric and Neonatal Care programme. My prime responsibilities are to take care of pregnancy, pregnancy related complications and neonatal problems. I see the women in the antenatal clinic, manage deliveries in the labour room and perform emergency caesarean sections for complicated deliveries in the operating theatre.  During the past 4 months, I have done 5 emergency caesarian sections, 185 normal deliveries, and have treated many women needing abortions and those who have miscarried. 

I also work in the family planning clinic where we provide free condoms, pills, coils and other permanent methods of family planning like vasectomies.  I recently went to different villages to provide a mobile vasectomy service in Rukum, Jajarkot and one village in Dolpa district.  In all I carried out 46 vasectomies in two weeks.”
