Expansion of surgical services in rural Nepal

Achham lacks adequate surgical services. Currently, the nearest Cesarean section capacity is over 5 hours away from Bayalpata Hospital. However, for most other surgical services, patients need to travel between 12 and 16 hours for care. This lack of nearby surgical services significantly increases the morbidity and mortality from surgical emergencies in Achham, especially obstetrical needs, as the maternal health situation is particularly dire. To address this need, we are implementing sustainable surgical and obstetrical health care services.
