Provide Malnutrition Screening in Nepal
Help community health workers in one of the most remote regions on Earth provide malnutrition screening for all children under five in their communities.
Acute malnutrition affects 18% of children in Achham, Nepal, where many families are unable to provide sufficient nutrition for their children. It can lead to disability and death if left untreated. But screening for malnutrition can take less than five minutes, and done every six months with referrals to nutrition programs for those diagnosed, it saves lives.
By providing community health workers trained to screen to help prevent malnutrition, we can protect children in Achham from this insidious condition.
You can help. $25 provides malnutrition screening for five children twice a year for the first five years of their lives, funding the salary, training, and supplies for a community health worker.
Nyaya Health operates a hospital and mobile medical care services in Achham, a large district in Nepal and one of the poorest regions in South Asia.

Nyaya constructs healthcare infrastructure, trains local health workers, and provides direct medical services, employing an all-Nepali staff with supervision and training from volunteer public health experts. The group maintains complete transparency in expenditures, operations protocols, and clinical outcomes.
