Humla District Hospital
Humla is the largest and poorest district in Nepal. It is divided into 27 Village Development Committees (VDC’s). There is little electricity or road communication networks in most parts of this remote district. The capital of the Humla District, Simikot, is only accessible to other parts of Nepal through its airport’s small dirt runway where only light aircraft can land for a portion of the year when the weather allows.
A Swinfen Telemedical link has been put into place to help care for these poor poeple
