  • 1. Background

    NEPTA has been organizing physiotherapy camps in different locations. The aims of these events are to improve the awareness of general public and to improve liaison with locally active organizations so that profile of physiotherapy is uplifted. Following the same practice, NEPTA organized the camp on 21st March 2015 in Sunakothi, Lalitpur. Though Sunakothi is within the Kathmandu Valley, it lies on the outskirts of the distirct. Hence, the target of the camp was to reach out to the populations which do not avail to physiotherapy services easily.

    1. Approaches adopted

      2.1 Partnership:

    NEPTA adopted a partnership approach with local Champapur Jaycees Group , Sunakothi, Lalitpur. The local partner was responsible for managing logistics/venue and disseminating the information about the camp into their network.  The Shree Krishna Mandir in Sunakothi provided the venue for the camp.
