HRDC consists of the main hospital in Banepa, and three Regional Offices established in different parts of Nepal. The offices in Nepalgunj, Baglung and Itahari aim to extend access to HRDC’s services by identifying children from disadvantaged, marginalized and out of reach communities. In addition, HRDC runs five satellite clinics in Nepalgunj, Baglung, Chitwan, Lahaan and Ithari. These clinics function as focal points for HRDC’s field activities, coordinating mobile clinics, conducting home visits and maintaining networks with local health stakeholders in the region.

How do we do it?
- An average of 149 extra working days are spent in the field for screening new patients, following up on old patients and people affected by the earthquake.
- HRDC conducts mobile camps in rural areas in order to provide medical services to marginalized communities, and we provide home visits to families that do not have the means to travel.
- We organize Surgical Camps, so we can efficiently treat children with preventable disabilities in the field. In addition we provide orthopedic appliances and re-fittings of prosthetics to children in the field.
- We work with local organizations in order to increase access to treatment, disability awareness and rehabilitation.
