Nepal health system is more advanced compare to rural areas. There are very few health centers in rural areas with basic facilities. Health Centers in rural areas lacks specialization in any kind of medical treatments. Rural Health Posts only deals with nominal medical issues. If people wish to get medical or health care services, they have to go to large private hospital located in city area which is expensive for people from poor economic background. Most of the people in rural area, especially women and children live with various health related problems. So, Health Camp is important for people from poor economic background in Nepal. Health Camp provides an opportunity to get health care services from medical professionals at free of cost.

Why health camp is needed although there are already rural health post exists?

Yes, there are already rural health posts exists but there is lack of medicine, health care professionals and medical equipment. Most of the qualified healthcare professionals in Nepal are city centered and only those who have received basic training on healthcare works in rural health post. Medicine are also available but they do not cover all diseases and health situation.
