Who We Are

 

Nyaya Health Nepal is a non-profit organization registered under the laws of Nepal.

In the fiscal year 2019, we provided 165,932 healthcare services at the facilities we manage directly and our Community Health Workers visited 147,563 patients.

 

Many of our doctors and nurses could have much more comfortable jobs in urban areas that would provide them opportunities to significantly advance their careers and reputations, yet they choose to live in remote locations to bring healthcare to those who need it most.

 

Our Community Health Workers, embedded in our communities, ensure we can provide quality healthcare to the almost 230,000 people who live in our catchment areas. They provide perinatal services, deal with non-communicable disease (NCD), mental health services and follow-up for patients who received treatment at our hospital facilities.

 

Our services team in Kathmandu works hard to support the entire team to reach our shared mission.

Our Directors, leadership team and all our staff share the same commitment, to realizing the organization’s mission of providing quality healthcare to underserved communities in Nepal.

Vision

Quality healthcare for all.

Mission

To improve healthcare for underserved populations by collaborating with the government of Nepal.

Culture Code

  1. Patients and communities first: The patients and communities we service are our priority

  2. Integrity: We do what we say; we are honest and ethical

  3. Innovation: We revise and update processes, systems and services continuously

  4. Team work: We help others succeed; we respect and trust each other
