Advancing Skin Care for Children in Nepal

In the summer of 2016, PASHA established an ongoing collaboration between the Society for Pediatric Dermatology and DI Skin Hospital and Referral Center in Kathmandu. With support from Health Volunteers Overseas, an educational exchange was established, whereby specialists in pediatric skin disease from the United States travel to Nepal several times a year to exchange ideas with Nepali experts, provide training to residents, and support patient care activities. This ongoing collaboration, which continues to this date, has enhanced the level of knowledge for dermatologists in Nepal and better prepared them to provide care for children with skin disease in the community.
