Slightly more than one hundred days into the response, 99% of the destroyed and damaged health facilities have resumed services across all affected districts; however, some services remain interrupted due to landslides and road blockage with the beginning of monsoon.Rehabilitation of people with orthopedic and spinal injuries resulting from the earthquakes continues, with step-down facilities and referral pathways in place across the country.One of the eight stool sample collected from ward number 13 and 14 (Balkhu, Kalimati, Kuleshwor, Soltimode) of Kathmandu tested positive for vibrio cholera. Ensuring uninterrupted access to essential and life-saving health care for all pregnant women, mothers, new-born and children remains a priority.National Tuberculosis Centre concluded a post disaster needs assessment (PDNA) in 11 of the 14 affected districts for TB programme, which will provide a coordinated and credible basis for recovery and reconstruction activities.During the reporting period, 12 Foreign Medical Teams (FMTs) continue to support existing health services, while medical camp kits have been replacing damaged and unserviceable primary health centres throughout the most affected districts.
