Special programs

In addition to the community and peripheral health care network, special programs to address specific health issues have been initiated by the Nepalese government and by Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs) both from Nepal and outside Nepal. To reduce mother and child mortality the maternal health care program “National Safe Motherhood Program” for antenatal and postnatal care has been initiated by the Ministry of health of Nepal. To reduce the burden of POP in rural areas, the government initiated mobile surgery camps.

Several NGO’s are providing health care in addition to routine care, for instance they organise gyno camps in rural areas to help POP patients and to improve knowledge and practical experience with POP amongst health care workers.
