Nepal – a landlocked country is one of the richest countries in the world in terms of bio-diversity due to its unique geographical position and altitude variation. The elevation of the country ranges from 60 meters above sea level to the highest point on earth, Mt. Everest at 8,848 meters. All within a distance of 150 kilometers of its breadth has resulted climatic conditions from sub-tropical to Arctic.
The health-care delivery network in Nepal was poorly developed. Mainly people of rural area are under the line of poverty. These villages are often located in remote, mountain villages that are geographically isolated and far from basic services. Rural healthcare services are at best rudimentary, with government health posts often going unstaffed and undersupplied for years. Nutrition is inadequate; vaccination rates are poor, access to education is irregular and low literacy rates remain a barrier to economic progress.
Health-care practices in the country could be classified into three major categories: popular folk medical care, which relied on a jhankri (medicine man or shaman); Ayurvedic treatment; and allopathic (modern) medicine. These practices were not necessarily exclusive; most people used all three, depending on the type of illness and the availability of services, sometimes even simultaneously. Sherpa Healthcare Nepal is formed to provide a necessary healthcare facilities to the people of very remote area.
