Bibhav Acharya, Executive Vice-President of Nyaya Health was invited to present at an interaction between non resident Nepalis and the two ambassadors (Nepali ambassador to the US and the US ambassador to Nepal) in Washington DC. This invitation-only event was organized by The Non-Resident Nepalis Association ( NRN) National Coordination Council of USA and featured in the Nepal News.
3. Assist in Development from Abroad: Permanently moving back to Nepal is not the only way NRNs can help with development in Nepal. Nyaya has a telemedicine program where expert advice is made available via email and phone calls to answer questions posed by the staff and managers at the hospital. We have also hosted several physicians who have provided on-site training to our staff members during short trips from abroad.
4. Donate and make social investments: There is a strong push to invest in for-profit ventures in Nepal. The excitement is fueled by end of the Maoist War and the successes of neighboring India and China. Social investment, however, must precede for-profit ventures. In addition to the moral reason to invest in transportation, education, nutrition and health, there is a strong financial reason to make such investments. Only after being able to meet the basic needs like food, shelter and healthcare, will people be able to contribute to the economy that everyone is trying to improve. Additionally, provision of basic services is essential to retain skilled labor. For example, it is very challenging to recruit effective managers to run a bank in a town where the nearest hospital is 6 hours away.
