100 – Bed Nepal Hospital, Courtesy $9.5 M South Korean Funding


Nepal’s ministry of finance and the embassy of the Republic of Korea have gone ahead and signed a MoU for Capacity Building of Medical Service so as to achieve universal health coverage for the poor across the susceptible areas in Bhaktapur, Nepal.

By way of the Korea International Cooperation Agency- KOICA, the Korean government will go on to spend $9.5 million pertaining to this project over the next five years. The project looks to elevate the capacity of the medical infrastructure as well as professionals when it comes to quality hospital management, better coverage of public health insurance, and infection control in Bhaktapur.

It is well to be noted that Korea International Cooperation Agency will construct a 100-bed hospital on the adjoining land that has in it Nepal Korea Friendship Municipality Hospital- NKFMH, offer required medical equipment, and create capacity when it comes to putting in place medical and administrative staff for the hospital. Apparently, the old and new hospital buildings shall be interconnected so as to make sure of effective service delivery.

Significantly, phase 2 of NKFMH is going to be instrumental in offering quality healthcare to not only the general public but poor too and also people who are vulnerable across Bhaktapur and nearby districts who are by the way going to have a seamless access to healthcare services that are specialised.
