FAIRMED is a Swiss development organization dedicated to work with its motto “Health for the Poorest”. The organization plays an important role in providing health care access to the marginalized communities and individuals who are prone to diseases, disability, and poverty. The core focus/theme of FAIRMED's work in Nepal is Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) and Maternal and Neonatal Health (MNH), while it interweaves GESI and Disability Inclusive Development (DID) as cross cutting themes into its programs to strengthen the health system and increase the uptake of public health services.  FAIRMED has completed implementing the two phases of Rural Health Improvement Project (RHIP) from 2018 until the end of 2021 in six Municipalities of Baglung, Gandaki Province.
