Message from Chairman

BP-ShahiI feel a great pleasure and privilege to share all of you the activities carried out by Rural Health Education and Service Center which was established in 1986.

RHESC is a non-governmental, non-profit making social organization involved in providing primitive, preventive and curative health care services among poor and underprivileged people of north-eastern area of Kathmandu valley.

It was in 1984/85 when I met Ms. Masako Yamane in Nepal who was working with ULBA organization as a volunteer. Her thought of serving poor and underprivileged people with different health problems gave me inspiration and through her guidance and support we started RHESC Clinic in a small rented room at the place called Gokarna Dakshin Dhoka, 13 kms. away north-east of center of Kathmandu city. As time passed away, through the love of respected Madam M. Yamane and friends from Japan it grew up so faster with the demand of time. We had to struggle a lot to come to this stage as a full-fledged mini hospital, which at present serves more than 12,000 poor and underprivileged people of the country each year.

Alternative medicine has been gaining popularity in the world and so as in Nepal, thus the services on acupuncture and Comfortable Healing Therapy has been the attraction of the Clinic of RHESC. The Comfortable Healing Service (Khai-igaku), which is available at RHESC has helped in making proper diagnosis and been able to cure diseases like Hepatitis A & B, HIV positives, Asthma, multiple joint pain, first and second stage of cancers and many more diseases.

At present, besides the regular general medical services, RHESC has also been providing surgical facilities for the eye, ear, nose and throat problems at its own building with the facility of standard operation theatre. Similarly, it has a facility for pathological investigations mostly for routine procedures and x-ray services.

To cope with the demand of poor and underprivileged people of Nepal on the modern methods of health care delivery system is very challenging. RHESC is trying its level best to sustain the present available services and expects continuous support from JNHDA, its well wishers and the government of Nepal in the coming days to come.

I sincerely thank all the executive members and staffs of RHESC for their support and dedication to achieve this progress.

Thank you.
