Sindhupalchok - Education & Health Care

There are more than half dozen colleges lunching bachelor degree in Sindhupalchok. More than 25 schools are running +2 level programs. Chautara campus has just started Science course in +2 level. There are almost one or more than one high school in each vdc of Sindhupalchok. Chautara Campus, Thokarpa Community Campus, Sunkoshi Campus are some leading campuses to provide education. For higher level education one ends up going to nearby district Kavre or Kathmandu.

Health Care
Following is the data obtained from Phase Nepal website:
•    Central/Regional/Zonal Hospital: 0
•    District Hospital: 1
•    Primary Health Care Centre: 2
•    Health Post: 11
•    Sub-health Post: 65
•    Number of doctors: 6
•    Number of nurses: 95
Although there is district hospital as well as primary health care centers, these are not enough for providing health services. The small health centers in many VDCs are without AHWs, ANMs and CHWs. So, people seeking emergency health assistance have to travel long distance to headquarter or Kathmandu or end up dying because of lack of treatment. Many people still believe in Dhami and Jhakris and are against taking medicine or going to hospital for the treatment. An NGO, Phase Nepal provides many health care facilities and training programs to two VDCs: Phulpingkot and Hagam. Many people residing in these VDCs have benefited from the program.
