Israeli Medical Delegation for underserved communities

Israeli Medical Delegation for underserved communities


The Embassy of Israel in Nepal, in collaboration with Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center-Ichilov Hospital and Janaki Medical College and Teaching Hospital (JMCTH), conducted free health camps in Naktajhi, Dhanusha and Sitapur of Mahottari district, Nepal.

During the free health camp in Janakpur, a delegation of eight Israeli doctors, who are professional experts in gynecology and women’s health issues, anesthesia and ICU, Pediatrics and Ophthalmology, together with the medical team of JMCTH, provided free health check-ups from June 11 to 15. The service was provided to more than 1,000 people belonging to the lower economic strata. Free medicines and glasses were distributed to the patients.

In addition, the Israeli medical delegation conducted a Seminar on “Women and Child Health” for the medical professionals from JMCTH and surrounding medical centers and discussed resuscitation, life saving measures, high-risk pregnancy and handling emergency cases. The new life-saving technologies and medical equipment brought by the delegation were also donated to JMCTH with a hope to be able to treat better, improve patient outcomes and save the lives of people.

Tal Shvartsman, Chargé d’Affaires of the Embassy of Israel, said, “These kinds of medical collaborations further strengthen the ties between our two nations at the people to people level. The plan of this project was initiated after I read an article about maternal deaths in Nepal due to avoidable reasons. The major idea was to bring life-saving technologies/medical equipment and to share Israeli doctors’ expertise with Nepali doctors to save the lives of people, especially women and children.” 

Dr Ronit Almog, a senior gynecologist and head of a multidisciplinary medical delegation said, “At the initiative of the Israeli Embassy in Nepal, we collaborated with the medical team of Janaki Medical College to run health camps providing medical, gynecological and ophthalmological care to the rural population. It is a great honor to be invited for the second time to Nepal. We are thankful for the warm hospitality of the Nepalis and look forward to further working together.”

JMCTH is said to carry out further treatment for those who need it. The camps are aimed at providing medical services to the underprivileged communities and addressing various health problems for early detection, prevention and treatment.
