Central level hospitals are still inaccessible to the vast majority of people in Nepal for many reasons such as accessibility, affordability and availability. Therefore, the health service programmes of the department attempt to address these problems. Eighteen different health centres located in rural areas of different parts of Nepal are currently providing round clock health care services to the people of the locality. These centres not only function as the centres for basic health care services but also function as a platform to provide various preventive, curative and rehabilitative services to the community.

These health centres are also being used as a platform for other organizations that are willing to work at the grassroots levels. All these centres were started after commitment and participation from the concerned community. We believe that strengthening the community is the most efficient means of achieving successful results in the community.
