  • Title: Why – Nyaya Health
    Descriptive info: Our Mission.. Our mission is to realize the right to health by delivering transparent, data-driven health care for Nepal’s rural poor.. Our Cultural DNA.. Why: Our Story.. In 2006, then Yale medical student Jason Andrews and his Nepali wife and filmmaker Roshani Andrews traveled to Nepal’s neglected Far-Western region on their honeymoon to document the lives behind the HIV crisis they had heard so much about.. When they arrived, they instead found themselves in a situation of multiple crises in Achham District – where 260,000 people lived without a doctor, infrastructure was destroyed by a 10-year civil war, and families were torn apart by migration of men to India to find work.. On March 12th, 2006 Jason emailed his close friends at Yale Medical School, Duncan Maru and Sanjay Basu, saying he felt “wholly compelled but completely adrift” by the devastation he had seen.. (.. read the original email.. ).. “…While I was staying there, I literally had 10 women a night knocking on my door asking for medical help for themselves or their children.. All but one of their husbands had worked in India and half of them were widows at 25-40 years old.. Among those that knew their [HIV] status, all were positive.. There are no medical services available to them beyond the most basic primary care (and that is often geographically and financially inaccessible)… It was very difficult to talk with these women because there was nothing I could offer or recommend to them.. The nearest facility providing HIV care (and  ...   They were told repeatedly that building a quality health system there wasn’t possible due to lack of infrastructure, the immense poverty, the political turmoil, and for lack of precedent – no one had done it before.. Yet they pushed back, determined to build an effective, durable organization rooted in the philosophy of “nyaya” or “the realization of just systems.. ”.. Nyaya Health’s vision began to be realized in 2008, when the three were joined by a growing global team of leaders – from Nepal, India, and the U.. S.. – and Achhami doctor and Nyaya Health Founding Medical Director, Jhapat Thapa, to transform an abandoned grain shed into a beautiful clinic operated by Nepali health care providers using a small sum of funding from friends and family.. That commitment to realization then came to define everything the organization did, from forming a novel public-private partnership with Nepal’s Ministry of Health to moving radically beyond a shamefully substandard approach to transparency in international development work.. Today, the organization has treated more than 101,000 patients, employs over 155 Nepali employees partnered with a global network of support, has attracted over $1 million dollars of investment ($105,000 from Nepal’s Ministry of Health), and has been.. distinguished by GiveWell.. as a standout organization for its ability to deliver care in an extremely poor region with unusual levels of transparency.. The right to health is being realized, and we need you to bring health to more people throughout rural Nepal.. Will you join us?.. Yes!.. Fri, 12:18AM.. Fri, 10:03AM..

  • Title: Our Work: Model – Nyaya Health
    Descriptive info: LEARN MORE.. Our Programs.. Our Work: Our Model.. Our model of change isn t founded on magic bullet solutions, but instead on a deeply rooted commitment to these three principles.. Partner with the Government.. We partner with Nepal’s government at all tiers of health infrastructure – hospitals, clinics, and community health workers because the government provides what we call the “infrastructure for equity.. ” Only public systems are fundamentally designed to reach the poorest of the poor.. Working within that infrastructure also creates a wedge for innovations and successful programs to achieve real scale quickly throughout the entire country via replication over shared systems.. Build Durability through Nepali Staff.. To us, long-term  ...   of our team members come from within a 3-district radius of Achham District in Nepal’s neglected Far-Western region.. This approach has made us one of the largest employers in the entire region outside the civil service sector.. Use Tools of Transparency.. Our ultimate aim is to strengthen services and accountability mechanisms so rural Nepalis can receive high-quality and responsive care from their government systems.. To achieve that level of accountability, we use powerful tools of transparency layered on top of government systems of management, accounting, and reporting.. We publish all financial and budgetary information in line-by-line formats, open impact data, and all clinical and management protocols on our public organizational wiki at..

Revealing our tools of transparency and failures.. Uncategorized.. THE NYAYA HEALTH BLOG.. ·.. Caroline King.. This year, on April 15.. th.. , I impulsively decided to run the Boston marathon.. I was at mile 25.. 77 when the bombs went off at the finish line, and experienced first hand Boston in crisis mode.. After the finish line was closed off and I found myself temporarily stranded in a sea of runners, I returned back to a friend’s college, not far from the bombings, to watch the media footage from the security of a dorm lounge.. Thirty-six hours later, I was on a flight to London, where I would then transfer with Nyaya’s co-founder Duncan Maru to Delhi, Kathmandu, Dhangadi, and finally arrive 10 hours later by jeep in Achham.. Throughout our travel, I read stories of the brave men and women at the end of the marathon who ran to Mass General to give blood and heard of the near perfect execution of the city’s hospitals in response to a mass casualty incident, even in the face of staggering numbers of wounded.. I watched as the city of Boston, the United States, and others around the world turned their attention to Boston, with the Twitter hashtag #bostonstrong trending in just twenty-four hours.. I was proud of Boston, and especially its medical staff, some of whom I’m honored to call friends.. It seemed a difficult time to be away from the city, but even 10,000 miles away, the strength and resilience was palpable.. Ten days later… it’s our last day in Achham.. Duncan and I walk to the emergency department to do an ultrasound of a boy he suspects may have a pericardial effusion.. The physicians are indecisive about his treatment, as his family can only spend 3000 rupees on his care.. The pending question is: should the boy travel with Duncan and I out of Achham to the nearest referral hospital in Nepalgunj tonight? Or is it possible that he will respond to drugs, already two weeks delayed, and ultimately recover?.. As we start the ultrasound, Bayalpata’s ambulance driver comes roaring into the parking lot, blaring his horn.. I walk to the other side of the ultrasound room, and see a crowd of people unloading a young man who is screaming and covered in blood.. He’s quickly brought into the emergency department, and one of the two staff physicians comes to find Duncan.. We leave the ultrasound room, and move into the emergency department.. Within the next hour, fifteen patients are brought to Bayalpata Hospital from a jeep accident nearly an hour away.. I watch as the first six patients are unloaded from ambulances, and then as the rest are unloaded from the back of a military truck bed lined in hay.. There are only five beds in our emergency department, and the staff are running around, pulling mattresses from the in-patient department and store room to put on the floor for patients.. With three physicians  ...   had a difficult time adjusting post-Nepal.. I spoke with Dan Schwarz, a Brown medical school alumnus who is now a medical resident in Boston, who provided me with the framework I tried to use for most of my trip.. Prior to my leaving for Achham, Dan wrote “I have two hopes for you: That you come back insanely, overwhelmingly excited and inspired by the work that we do, and that you come back humbled (indeed, perhaps even appalled and angered ) at how much more there is to do.. So thankful was I that we had a medical system that I looked at most cases through the lens that if Nyaya were not here, the patients we see wouldn’t receive even the level of care that they’re receiving now.. But now, I’m writing this piece from the front seat of a jeep that carries myself and our jeep driver in the front seats.. Duncan is in the trunk.. A set of young parents, a baby who suffered a fall today, and the boy on whom we performed an ultrasound for a pericardial effusion sit in the back.. The boy needs emergency care in Kathmandu.. We’re driving in a line of four ambulances to Nepalgunj, where the baby will be seen, along with the patients in the other three ambulances who are critical or urgent from the jeep accident.. Before I began writing, we pulled over so that Duncan could check on the most urgent patients and continue to push dextrose down the nasogastric tube in the baby.. For all the flaws in our medical system, I can’t help thinking that if these patients were in Boston, they could walk into an ER and find life-saving, although likely not free, care.. Setting aside all of the other barriers that patients in Achham face, proximity to timely, life-saving care is a frontrunner in a time of crisis is among the most significant.. Now, back in Boston, the city has regained a sense of normalcy.. The emergency rooms stand waiting, well-stocked, for their next patients who are just three telephone digits away from life-saving care, while those in Accham are not afforded this same privilege.. I am left appalled, angered, but above all hopeful about the work that remains ahead.. In Achham, the race to provide widespread comprehensive care has just begun.. Posted in.. |..

Applications are being accepted on an immediate, rolling basis for Nepali and international candidates.. Preference will be given to applicants willing to commit at least two years to the position.. More about Bayalpata Hospital:.. Bayalpata Hospital, the hub of Nyaya Health’s expanding work in rural Nepal, is a renovated 30 year-old government facility that is managed and operated by Nyaya Health through a public-private partnership with Nepal’s Ministry of Health and Population.. The hospital provides free care to over 32,000 patients per year in one of the poorest regions of the country and is home to 57 Nepali and 4 international team members.. The hospital is a full-service primary care hospital, providing outpatient, inpatient, and emergency medical services.. The core clinical programs are supported by x- ray, ultrasound, and laboratory services coupled with specific government partner programs in HIV, TB, malnutrition, and safe motherhood.. Obstetric care and minor surgical services will soon be complemented by a fully functional operating theater.. An image of Bayalpata Hospital is available.. We are looking for a leader readied for the challenge of building a clinical and operational hub of excellence in one of South Asia’s poorest communities.. The HD is expected to couple visionary leadership and strategy with disciplined management and detailed implementation in a challenging environment in Far-Western Nepal.. Most importantly, your orientation toward the work should match well with our operating values, or what we call our “cultural DNA.. ” See those..

The commitment to delivering on deadlines, in spite of the consistent unexpected problems, is key.. Experience as a patient relationship builder.. The HD will be perceived as one of the organization’s most identifiable leaders within the country of Nepal, second only to the Country Director.. Thus, a substantial component of the position is to build relationships across a broad spectrum – from parents of patients to staff to high-level partners in the government and global funding partners.. Ability to oversee work in multiple domains.. The HD is both a leader and manager – responsible for setting direction and delivering results through staff in areas of programmatic growth, procurement, human resources, clinical care, and data.. In short, the HD needs to be a chameleon – adaptable to being at home in many different work environments.. An efficient and inspiring approach to communications.. The HD is often a central connector or final filter between our work in Nepal and a broad global audience.. Hence, an ability to authentically and transparently capture the essence of our work in bringing health care to some of the poorest citizens of the world internally and externally is vital in order to motivate staff and supporters alike.. The HD will be a member of an expanding director-level team responsible for leading programs in Nepal and will be charged with overseeing the entirety of programs at Bayalpata Hospital..

Direct strategy and management of Bayalpata Hospital, including budgeting, staffing, policy, procurement, clinical programs development, and partnerships..

Expand NH’s partnerships at partner health facilities, referral partners, and hospital human resource pipeline partners.. Management of hospital staff:.. The HD reports to the Country Director and is responsible for management of team members at Bayalpata Hospital across clinical and non-clinical domains.. Financial oversight:.. The HD is ultimately accountable for the fiscal responsibility of Bayalpata Hospital, which will be operating on a budget of over $500,000 during the 2012- 2013 fiscal year.. Human Resources:.. Work with the Country Director, Director of Operations, and Administrative Director to develop and amend human resource policies.. Oversee hiring process for all hospital-based staff.. Oversee clinical volunteer recruitment and selection strategy.. Location..
