As the death toll rises following last Sunday’s earthquake in India and Nepal, the Nyaya Health team sends encouragement to all those affected by the disaster. During the years since its establishment, Nyaya has assisted those affected by landslides, earthquakes, and other natural phenomena. Such events have not only taken numerous Achhami lives, but have also affected operations at Bayalpata Hospital by impeding transportation and medical supply chains.
As we move forward following this tragic event, we at Nyaya Health will continue to uphold the Nepali government’s work to improve infrastructure and emergency preparedness. Through systems-building and collaborative approaches, it may be possible to minimize the damage and injury caused by future natural disasters.
