Organization Summary

Nepal is one of the poorest countries in the world, and the health care available to many Nepalis is clearly inadequate. One of the main reasons for this is the unwillingness of health care personnel, particularly doctors, to serve in Nepal’s remote and rural areas. The country’s current system of medical education has failed to address this. The Patan Academy of Health Sciences (PAHS) is dedicated to improving the health status of the people of Nepal by producing doctors who are willing and able to provide health care to disadvantaged Nepalis living in  remote or rural areas. The academy initially consists of a School of Medicine, which began to teach prospective doctors in 2010. In future, PAHS is expected to open a School of Public Health, a School of Nursing, a School of  Allied Health Sciences to train other health care professionals.
