Access to healthcare services, hygiene, drinking water and toilets are ongoing problems in remote and disadvantaged communities of Nepal.

Health for All: primary healthcare and maternal and child health

The focus of our health projects is on healthcare for mothers and small children, and on raising awarness regarding hygiene and nutrition. Qualified staff provide ante- and postnatal care and offer professional help in childbirths, and closely monitor the nutrition status of small (under five-year-old) children.

By providing qualified staff and medicine as well as training for staff, by improving buildings and offering health education in schools as well as awareness raising in the communities, and by improving sanitation (toilets, drinking water), PHASE addresses different levels in order to improve the situation long-term and make people understand their right to healthcare. In this way, we hope that communities will start to invest more in healthcare and become self-sufficient in the long run.
