We are very pleased to welcome Parbati into the Doctors for Nepal family, as one of our first 2 midwifery degree students.  It is the first time that a midwifery degree course has been set up in Nepal, in conjunction with Karnali Academy of Health Sciences (KAHS). We have awarded Parbati a full scholarship to study midwifery at degree level at KAHS.  She started her 1st year of study at KAHS Jumla Nursing College in November 2019 and will finish her training in 2023 (her three year course was extended by 6 months during the pandemic).
