PDF File Size: 133 KB | Download   
The official Government figure reports a total of 6250 death and 357 injured. The ongoing treatment efforts continue to focus on reaching a greater number of areas in the priority 14 districts including those in the remote and hard-to-reach areas. As of 1 May 2015, a total of 24 999 patients have been treated in different hospitals in and outside the Kathmandu valley and 3249 have been admitted for hospital services according the latest information from Health Emergency Operation Center (HEOC)/Ministry of Health and Population (MoHP). Reaching the injured in the remote area s remains a challenge due to access problems. Most of the remote villages are not linked with road networks. A total of 86 registered foreign medical teams (FMTs) are in country. Over 60 teams are already deployed. Currently there is no need for more teams of trauma or surgical response. There is a need for specialist teams capable of rehabilitation care, with physiotherapists and occupational therapists and rehabilitation physicians. A full paper for the critical gaps in rehabilitation care for an estimated >600 patients is being finalized with the MOHP, in conjunction with Handicap International, International Organization for Migration and WHO. Remote area teams are still reporting limb injured patients requiring care, but referral pathways are improving daily with access to more national hospitals and foreign medical teams, type 2 (surgical) set up in the districts. This forms the basis of the hub and spoke model of care designed to decrease the displacement of patients requiring care.
