Course Description

Organizations working in rehabilitation in Nepal, including the Nepal Physiotherapy Association, collaborated with the Nepal government by advocating for and embedding rehabilitation services into the ongoing health response to the 2019 windstorm. The rehabilitation efforts reached 125 people who were injured by the windstorm. Various lessons were taken from the locally-led rehabilitation response that built upon the response to the 2015 Nepal.
