Expansion in global communication, travel and trade has increased the need for clinical and public health professionals who understand health issues that transcend national and continental borders.
Nepal is rich in culture, but challenged by a wide and varied range of complex health issues. Most Nepali people live in remote villages that are difficult to reach and lack public health services. As a result of these challenges, the people of Nepal experience several major health issues, such as malaria, HIV and complex reproductive health issues including the highest rate of uterine prolapse in the world. These issues provide a rich opportunity for research, community engagement and program development.
This course will provide an elective intensive practicum
that will give students first hand experience in a diverse setting that is poised for program development and partnerships with Western students. Nursing and Public Health students are encouraged to apply.
