Prefab health facilities proving a boon for post-earthquake Nepal

Apr 02, 2018

UNICEF-supported prefab health facilities are proving to be a boon towards building back better post-earthquake Nepal. The health workers feel confident to continue treatment inside the prefab building and patients do not run during the aftershocks. Also, from the viewpoint of preparing for future disasters, it is a suitable alternative to existing mud mortar buildings as the former provides a disaster resilient solution to a country like Nepal which is prone to various seismic activities and is continuing to experience aftershocks of the 2015 earthquakes. Speaking to the UNICEF team, Dr Laxmi Bogati, the in-charge of Salyantar Primary Health Care Centre, Dhading summarized the added value of the prefab building.
