Surgical Care in Far-Western Nepal

Commitment by

Possible Health

In 2012, Nyaya Health committed to improving maternal healthcare in rural Nepal by creating a surgical center at Bayalpata Hospital that will expedite emergency obstetric care. Nyaya Health will renovate the space required to prepare for and carry out surgeries, deliveries, blood transfusions, antenatal care, and contraception. Following this, Nyaya Health will implement surgical services with the support of several Nepali staff members and international volunteers who have been working within Nepal. Since this will be the first fully staffed surgical care center available to over 260,000 people, Nepali expects to serve at least 9,244 women by providing surgeries, deliveries, blood transfusions, antenatal care, and contraception within the first 3 years of opening the center. To ensure the hospital continues to deliver quality, effective care, Nyaya Health will regularly review and evaluate the hospital's practices and mortality rates.
