Nepal Health Corps
Nepal Health Corps is for empowering young medical professionals and student doctors to achieve Universal Health Coverage 2030 Mission at community, district, and national scales of Nepal.
With the motto ‘Together for Healthier Nepal’, We are building a national network of universities, research centers, and other partner organizations/institutions to translate the latest expertise in Universal Health Coverage into action.
Launched in 2019, Nepal Health Corps supports the localization of Universal Health Coverage and its implementation, develop long-term transformation pathways for Universal Health Coverage in Nepal, promote education around Goal 3 - Good Health and Well-Being and other interrelated SDG’s, and launch solutions-based initiatives.
After its lunch in 2019, NHC has established an Ambassador Program selecting proven youth leader from every medical institute of Nepal as an Ambassador.
The NHC Ambassadors program will train, support, connect and celebrate the young generation of thought leaders, activists and innovators to transform our marginalized communities, and to help advance progress on the Universal Health Coverage in both cities and rural areas they represent.
This program is a year program with the mission to empower and equip medical students and young leaders from cities across Nepal with the knowledge, resources and a platform taking the Ambassadors on a journey of charting pathways for ‘localizing’ the sustainable development agenda on Universal Health Coverage through the process of learning, exploration and collaboration. The Ambassadors will channel the ideas and knowledge they acquire into a project idea they will develop over the course of the next 12 months; the main outcome and deliverable of the program.
In order to foster ownership and contextualize the learning and exploration process, each Ambassador will be asked to pick a Health development challenge pertinent to their selected community and area of interest, which will become their area of focus. The project idea will constitute an initiative aimed at addressing Ambassadors’ chosen Health developmental challenge.
National Symposium on Good Health And Well Being
With the theme "Localizing Pathways for Universal Health Coverage: Role of Young Leaders", Nepal Health Corps organized National Symposium on Good Health and Well Being which will train 50 Young Medical and paramedical leaders representing 23 medical colleges of Nepal.
The workshop had a session where each divided group had to create an innovative solution to achieve certain target under SDG 3. The solutions created enhanced their sophistication, understanding and innovative skills.
