B.P. Koirala Memorial Cancer Hospital in dire straits

Posted by Anup Baral September 24, 2016 :
P Koirala Memorial Cancer Hospital in Bharatpur, once known as a model health facility across Asia, has been reeling under acute financial crunch in Chitwan of late. The hospital, which was established with the aim of providing cancer treatment, prevention, awareness and conducting research on the disease, has hardly been providing treatment at present. According to sources, it started to face financial crunch due to growing expense and dwindling budget every year. As the government’s plan to operate the hospital along with another health facility with the budget issued from the health tax fund act of 1994 failed to materialise, the health facility began to face crisis due to inadequate budget allocation.
