PDF File Size: 840 KB | Download   
Established as a non-governmental organization in 1991, the Public Health Concern Trust (phect-NEPAL) is a non-profit making entity. It is registered at the Kathmandu District Administration Office and affiliated with the Social Welfare Council/Nepal (SWC/N) since February 1993. The Ministry of Health has granted permission for its operation in the health sector.
Principal objective of phect-NEPAL is to create a sustainable health care scheme based on the principles of people's participation, with the goal of achieving better health services to a greater number of the poorer section of the population. Specific objectives are:
1. To launch community health development activities either independently or in coordination with other government health institutions and NGOs
2. To seek ways for providing sustainable health services to the needy.
3. To facilitate/encourage the establishment of health cooperative models in the community.
4. To engage in the research work concerning community health and any other field of health science.
5. To run a central model hospital, which will serve as the referral hospital for the community (which also will be open for others as a centre for training health professionals in the phect-NEPAL’s spirit; a place for research and academic activities).
6. To implement the idea of integrating curative service with preventive medicine.
7. To establish coordination with local health authorities and other NGOs to launch various health activities.
8. To create a small model of non-commercial, sustainable, non-governmental health care scheme, which could be replicated by other organizations.
