The goal would be to provide the communities living in Tanahu access to "immediate" medical help. The vehicle would be conveniently stationed just off the main road connecting Kathmandu - Pokhara.
The future "Medical Center" consists of 3 parts
- a Health Station
- a "First Aid Station" with transport vehicle and
- a teaching, training and education center
The health center consists of a first aid station which is a project by medihimal in cooperation with the Red Cross, The plan would be to equip the vehicle with the necessary instruments and materials required for primary and emergency care.
The ambulance should be either a Mahindra or Tata model so that the drivers and medical staff are familiar with the vehicle and when necessary, maintenance at the local garage can be done immediately with minimal obstacles.
In addition to the First Aid Station a teaching center is planned. The overall goal is to educate the people and help them build their skills in order to attain a level of independence and self-sustainability.
