HEALTH

Our programmes address malnutrition, emotional health & HIV/AIDS.

Inadequate medical care is reaching crisis point in Nepal. Nepal has virtually no social programmes for people who, for whatever reason, end up destitute. There is no state welfare system. The only way for the poorest inhabitants to get medical help is through outside support. Nepal Youth Foundation’s diverse programmes address malnutrition, emotional health and HIV/AIDS.

We evaluate our programmes regularly to determine how they can be more effective. The evaluations include measuring the outcomes of each programme on the children we help, their parents and their communities, comparing these outcomes to similar metrics in previous years and comparing the health and academic progress of children we support to the national averages in Nepal. Furthermore, the Social Welfare Council of the government of Nepal evaluates our organisation every five years.
 
We continue to work with the government and other organisations such as the Department of Education, Child Heath Division, Central Child Welfare Board & District Welfare Boards, District Public Health Offices, UNICEF and many more to ensure the longevity and success of our programmes.
