Please Understand Nepal at a Local level before Administering Global Health ideas


I was looking at WorldView Nepal's list of projects that they have worked in and was quite impressed. One thing that people outside of Nepal need to understand is that whatever solution is to be implementable in Nepal, it has to be done at a local level. Unlike America where simply publishing a report saying that it is the "latest research findings," in Nepal, it takes a thorough understanding of the local culture to implement a health concept.

So as I was looking at the list of projects that World View Nepal has engaged in so far, I was encouraged as to the degree to which they have taken the time to understand the specifics of the local culture before implementing the health solution.
