THE NEPAL DIRECTOR-GENERAL OF HEALTH
July 1 2016
The Nepal Department of Health is grateful to Australians for Women’s Health for the exceptional work it has provided to the underprivileged women of Nepal. A4WH has performed many life-changing operations on these women, often under extremely difficult circumstances.
A4WH has been responsible for the extensive training of numerous local gynaecology surgeons …. and local midwives. This is essential for the reduction of maternal and perinatal mortality in our country.
In the years to come we look forward to the development of numerous projects in collaboration with A4WH to further improve the lives of the disadvantaged women of Nepal.
