Our 25th Telemedical link in Nepal was set up today to a health post in Tangting, Kaski. This is a community health post with just 2 nurses, 1 birthing bed, offering a very basic service with no diagnostic equipment and basic drugs supplied by the Nepali government.
Tangting is a Gurung village that is in a very remote part of Nepal, located 21 miles North of Pokhara. There are 200 houses with a population of approx 1350. The village is surrounded by hills and forests so to get to the main hospital in Pokhara it is an hour walk to meet up with jeeps then a two and a half hour drive!
We will do all we can to help improve the health and lives of the village people through our Swinfen Telemedical link.
