About Mountain Heart Nepal:

Mountain Heart Nepal is operated by a group of young medical professionals and has been working since the devastating earthquake of April 25, 2015. Our mission was to initially provide medical treatment to the victims of the earthquake and provide accessible healthcare to areas where it has previously been inaccessible. Now, we are focusing on emergency response, health service development and in promoting research excellence.

We regularly host journal clubs, which is an excellent opportunity to review changes to standard practice and reviews of policies and procedures. Therefore, we invite health professionals nationally and internationally familiar with critically appraising literature to share their thoughts with our audience. An email to can be sent to become the lead speaker in our journal club.
