NSI began its operation in 2006 by providing training to government healthcare workers. It continues to facilitate training programs to government healthcare cadres with the aim to fulfill the relevant gaps. The training program focuses on clinical services to equip government healthcare workers enhancing their knowledge and skill.
Two principles guide NSI’s training program:
Select those cadres most likely to have impact in the government’s rural healthcare system.
Partner with Nepal’s hospitals to provide quality training.
Choosing the right people for training.
NSI works closely with Nepal’s Ministry of Health to fill gaps in the essential healthcare team.
