About Spinal Injury Rehabilitation Centre
The Spinal Center, as it has come to be known (also ”Spinal Kendra”), is formally the Spinal Injury Rehabilitation Center (SIRC). The Center was inaugurated in April of 2002 by the late Sir Edmund Hillary, at Jorpati in Kathmandu city. It shifted to its current custom-built facility at Saanga village, Kavre District, in November 2008.
Over nearly a decade of work, the Spinal Center has developed a range of facilities to support the spinally injured of Nepal, who tend to come from the most marginalised bracket of society.
