PHASE works for sustainable improvement for the people living in remote communities. Besides clinical care to the mothers and children, we directly engage and partner with the local communities to raise awareness on essentials of nutrition, hygiene, and immunization for a healthy life. We engage them with scheduled workshops and orientation events on preparing age-wise nutritious food, educate new mothers and pregnant women on the importance of ANC /PNC check-ups, and monitoring their baby’s health regularly.
As the COVID-19 situation is slowly coming back to normal, PHASE Nepal will further work on strenthening the health services in hard to reach areas and also empower the communities with other support activities.
