Become a Hospice and Palliative Care provider in Nepal
Overview – The Binaytara Foundation wishes partner with local physicians and organizations to provide hospice care to terminally ill individuals in all of Nepal. We invite physicians currently practicing in Nepal to partner with the Binaytara Foundation to start hospice and palliative care services in Nepali communities where access to healthcare is limited.
Geographic focus: Communities with high population density but limited access to healthcare will be given priority.
What does this partnership include?
- The Binaytara Foundation home hospice partnership includes hospice and palliative care training and fee for service (payment) to the physician or another team member to visit patients at their homes. The amount of reimbursement/payment depends on the number of patients served.
