Dho Tarap Health Post

DHo Tarap Health Post was started to provide basic health care and awareness to the pupils and the villagers from 2005. It was upgraded when a passive solar house was built in 2009. A nurse and a health assistant returned to work after completing their studies in 2011. A birthing center was fully equipped in 2012 with attached toilet bathrooms and indoor wash basins and a small solar electrification. In 2015, the health post was shifted to a government built health post. This year the federal government has approved to upgrade the health post to 15-bedded-hospital.

Apart from the government employed health staff, currently we have two local health assistants employed by Vision Dolpo.

Our health assistants work on a rotational basis every year-one in summer period( for a seven month, from Mid April –Mid November) and another  in winter period(for 5 months, from Mid November-Mid April) so that the locals have access to health service through out the year.
