Mission Statement

Neither geographical location nor socioeconomic status should determine the level of emergency medical care a person receives -- or if they receive emergency medical care at all.

  • Over ninety percent of the 30,000,000 Nepalis live in very remote, rural, and austere areas. This is where Nepal Medics are working to erase the socioeconomic prehospital emergency medicine access barrier. Nepal Medics are doing this by creating a completely sustainable, measurable, scalable, and replicable Community-Based EMS System. Nepal Medics have started this process through the creation and training of RFRs and RMRs, Lobbying for Rural EMS standards, and training through the Nepal Minister of Health and Population (MoHP), World Health Organization (WHO), and the National Health Training Center of Nepal (NHTS) for a few examples. Nepal Medic is pioneering the first-ever Rural EMS Dispatch Center. This rural EMS Dispatched will offer toll-free access to all in rural Nepal.
