Doctor's Review: Medicine on the Move

NEPAL CRITICAL CARE DEVELOPMENT FOUNDATION

The Nepal Critical Care Development Foundation (NCCDF) is a legally-registered non-governmental, non-political, not-for-profit organisation established in Jan 2013, after few like minded physicians working in Intensive Care Units in Nepal came to the conclusion that an organization was needed that could help and support to improve the status of Critical Care Medicine (CCM) and ICUs in Nepal.

Where they work

With an average per capita income of $642 per year, Nepal is one of the poorest countries on earth. Because of logistical and political difficulties, the health care situation remains unstable and ICU treatment is still in its infancy. See inthealth.oxfordjournals.org/content/5/2/92.full.pdf?keytype=ref&ijkey=VVFSAFdLmFroDvz for more details about Nepalese critical care (accessed June 12, 2013.)

Who is needed

The NCCDF is currently looking for doctors and nurses to provide care in Nepal. Contact the NCCDF for more details.

Canadian connection

Dr. Redouane Bouali and Dr. Laura Hawryluck are the International Members of the foundation. Dr. Bouali is an intensivist at The Ottawa Hospital and Dr. Hawryluck works in critical care at the Toronto General Hospital and the Toronto Western Hospital.
