In Nepal, being one of the least developed countries in the world, existing medical care service has become the most complicated and challenging task. It is a well-known fact that the efforts of the government alone will not be sufficient to meet the health care needs. The people themselves should play active role if the dream of creating a healthy society is to be materialized.

In view of the prevailing situation of health care sector, no one can deny that the efforts of the government and the non-government sector including their proposed future program will remain unequal to the growing demands for health care. Taking this fact into account, different individuals engaged in the related fields felt the need of the non-governmental social service organization which can help easy, accessible and appropriate health care services to the common people who are still deprived of such facilities. As a result, Health care Foundation-Nepal (HECAF-Nepal) was established in 1994. HECAF is fully dedicated to providing health care services and broadly targets the common people of both rural and urban areas.

The main objectives of HECAF-Nepal are as follows:

1) To provide preventive and curative health services to the common people in easy, accessible and appropriate manner.

2) To play an active role in providing institutional support and to facilitate potential contributions in this sector through close contacts and co-ordination with governmental, non-governmental and international bodies involved in the related field.

3) To deal with various issues that are directly or indirectly related to the health of common people such as environmental pollution, solid waste disposal, lack of pure drinking water, misuse of medicines and other harmful activities. The organization intends to provide possible institutional support by launching public awareness campaigns and conducting or promoting subject specific studies and research in the field.

4) To provide basic health care to the common people by organizing health camps, mobile hospitals, blood donation camps etc.

5) To provide institutional support to the people affected by natural disasters, epidemics and accidents as far as possible.

6) To operate ambulance service equipped with on-the-spot emergency treatment facilities.

7) To provide simple accessible and appropriate health care by establishing a well- equipped and well-managed health center in accordance with the need of the times.
