Nyaya Health | Nepal
One Day's Wages is proud to partner with Nyaya Health to establish Far-western Nepal's most comprehensive microbiology laboratory. ODW will match the $12,177 raised for a total of $24,354.
This lab will impact the lives of everyone in the community and specifically over 3,000 people a year will finally receive proper testing and treatment to help combat the deadly infectious diseases and end the harmful inaccurate treatment.
Who Is Nyaya Health?
Nyaya Health (Nyaya means 'justice' in Nepali) is a non-profit organization working in Far-western Nepal to address access to quality health care to over 266,000 people. They run Bayalpata Hospital, a free 25-bed hospital with inpatient/outpatient wards, 24-hour emergency, obstetric and lab services, a pharmacy, and ambulance referral. Their goal is two-fold
- To provide free community-based health care in rural Nepal that strengthens the public sector.
- To develop and disseminate effective strategies of health delivery in resource-poor settings throughout the world
Why Microbiology Labs?
In Far-Western Nepal, infectious diseases remain one of the leading causes of death. Yet, there is no comprehensive microbiology laboratory available in the entire region (a region of over 2.2 million people). This means there is no ability to perform culture tests or evaluate for drug resistance, which has led to improper diagnoses, unnecessary deaths, and crippled efforts at preventing and controlling the spread of infectious diseases.
What is the ODW | Nyaya Health Partnership?
Through this project Nyaya Health will establish Far-Western Nepal’s first and most comprehensive microbiology laboratory. The nearest laboratory capable of performing culture and drug resistance testing is 15 hours away. With an average of over 2,000 visits a month, the need for infectious disease diagnostics at the hospital is tremendous.
This matching grant will help purchase the needed laboratory equipment and one year's worth of supplies (blood culture bottles, culture media, agar plates, antibiotic disks for resistance testing), and salary for a laboratory technician to oversee the laboratory. [Learn More]
