1st Americas Regional Nepali Health Conference

‘Irving, Texas, United States, May 26-28, 2023’
Over 2500 doctors and over 5500 nurses of Nepali nurses work in the United States (including Hawaii and Alaska), Canada, Carribean, Central America and South America. All these locations are collectively known as Americas region. Further there are several thousand paramedics, lab technicians, pharmacist, Public health professional, health economist and health informatics professional of Nepali origin.

Together, adding all of them, over 15,000 gigantic health force of Nepali origin exist in the Americas region. This is powerful force that make meaningful impact in improving health of nepali people: both in the Americas and in Nepal.

There are several associations, organizations and foundations representing large or small part of this huge health force. They include, but not limited to, ANPA (America Nepali Physician Association), HFN (Health Foundation Nepal), TNMA (Texas Nepali Medical Association), ANMF (America Nepali Medical Foundation), SANN (Society of American Nepali Nurses), USA-NRNA Health Committee, Nepal Nurses of America, Americas NRNA Regional Health Committee.

Additionally there are social and cultural organizations nationally as well as in different states and cities in the United States and in the Americas region that are run by people of Nepali origin that provide health services, in this region and in Nepal, in different form or manner whether it is for prevention, diagnosis or management of disease conditions, building policy and implementing them.

These organizations include Blood Donors of America run by NepalI, Lions Everest Club, Rotary Club, Nepalese in SouthEast Asia (NASeA), Pashupati Cultural and Spiritual Center in Texas, Association of Nepali in Americas (ANA) and several others. These organizations not only provide services to Nepali in Americas but also in Nepal. Besides these services in the Americas they also raise funds for Nepal, sends health team to Nepal and provide support to Nepal province and central government.

Seemingly these organizations could benefit from each other if they could come together in a conference first and then in a network thereafter. This supports each of them tremendously in multiple ways such as in providing best practices and lesson learned, information to each other, sharing information on their services and resource generation and other.

Because of this rationale we are organizing Americas Regional Health Conference in Irving during May 27-28, 2023!
This conference is jointly organized by Global Health Committee of NRNA International Coordinating Committee and Health Committee of NRNA-USA.
