I’ve been following this work for some time now and have been quite amazed by the work Ms. Laura Spero and her team of Nepali dental technicians have been doing in rural Nepal for over 12 years. Recently, a team of foreign professionals joined the team at four dental clinics to audit the work they have been doing. Looks like it has been solid work from the outset with the general consensus that the work has delivered “measurably positive health benefits for their patients”.
And even better, the evidence demonstrated “a rigorous foundation for arguing that similar clinics should be incorporated in all 3,000 of Nepal’s health posts”. Wow.
It’s remarkable what can be achieved when a group of like-minded people have a dream and a plan on how to realize this dream. Inspiration for us all.
All I can say is, prepare to be amazed when reading this blog post . And if you can spare the time, I would encourage you to pop into other posts. They will give you a sense of what it is to live in the rural village of Kaskikot, some eight hours by bus from Pokhara.
