KATHMANDU, Oct 17: State Minister for Health and Population Dr Surendra Kumar Yadav has informed that the government is preparing to set up trauma centres in all seven provinces.
Speaking at a program organized in the capital on Thursday to mark World Trauma Day, State Minister Yadav said that trauma centres will be established in each province based on the principle of federalism. “Those centres will be operated under the National Trauma Center and the national centre will be upgraded with world-class services and technology,” added he.
Similarly, the government will also open health laboratories in all the provinces, according to Yadav.
Yadav admitted that the government lacks both the budget and manpower to develop the health sector. “Due to lack of necessary policies, some health institutions can’t be reformed,” grumbled he.
