The medical work of INF is serving more than 50,000 people yearly with treatment, operations, general healthcare, community services and medical camps. Green Pastures Hospital (GPH) in Pokhara serves about 18,000 patients and remains the biggest leprosy and rehabilitation hospital in Nepal’s Western Regions. Having 40 beds [20 for leprosy patients and 20 for patients with other forms of disability] it remains the hub for referrals from other INF centres, as well as hospitals and local partner organisations across western Nepal.
The next steps in the development for GPH is growing bed capacity to 100, registering the hospital with the government and establishing additional teams to increase the range of services.
The need in Nepal for these kinds of services is great, so the leadership team of the hospital has ambitious plans to grow the range of services and number of hospital beds to meet the demand for specialist care.
Since its doors opened, GPH has provided treatment and relief to thousands, earning it a reputation of delivering high standard care to the poorest and most marginalised people of Nepal.
