Experiences from the James P Grant School of Public Health
Nothing saddens me more than having to listen to stories of women and children dying from diseases such as, diarrhoea, measles, pneumonia, malnutrition, etc, which can very easily be avoided through preventable measures. Having grown up in one of the remotest parts of Nepal, I have been exposed to such gruesome conditions ever since I was a child.
This is what led me to enrolling into a Bachelor of Public Health degree after acquiring my higher secondary school certificate. It was the first step I took to pursue a path in the public health sector. I studied hard and, after graduation, worked closely with the Nepal government’s nutrition sector for more than three years.
