What’s happening in the FAIRMED projects

An insight into our work on the ground

FAIRMED is there where the roads end. We provide the poorest people in Asia and Africa with access to basic medical care, because only healthy people can truly escape their poverty and go on to lead dignified lives. In the news ticker, we keep you informed about the activities carried out by us to achieve this goal.

First NTD-ward opened in Nepal

The first ward for the treatment of neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) was recently opened at Lumbini Provincial Hospital. It is the first ward of its kind ever to be integrated into a public hospital in Nepal. FAIRMED Nepal lobbied the government for a long time and supported the hospital management by training staff and providing medical equipment for the opening. Treatment and care here - in contrast to private clinics - is completely free of charge for those affected by NTDs.
