In November 2019 SVPI will be running a specialised women’s health program in an isolated Nepalese village in the Chepang hills and also a jungle village close to the Indian border.
We need a team of Australian health professionals (and students towards the end of their degree) to work alongside Nepali health care professionals.
Each year we become increasingly aware of the burden that uterine prolapse has on the quality of life of women in rural Nepal. In some of the villages, we currently work in it is estimated that up to 75% of women of all ages have some degree of prolapse. These issues will be the focus of this program.
Apply now or contact us for more information.
