I was born in December 19,1986. I was awarded for being in top 5 students all over Nepal during my high school among indigenous community and awarded for ranking top during my higher secondary school. I have completed my graduation from Nepal in Dentistry. After the graduation, I joined an NGO named Health and Development Society Nepal. Then, I was awarded with Nuffic Fellowship award in 2017 for masters degree and I completed my post graduate studies from Vrije University, Amsterdam. Netherlands. I have been travelling to remote places, conducting integrated health camps with motivation and leadership development. During my travel, I was able to see misery and pain of my fellow-men all over the country. Being there amongst the people has given me an experience which cannot be obtained through any text book. As the Non Governmental Organization (NGO) that I am working for looks to deal with the health related issues in an integrated approach like coordinating integrated health camps, school programs, sanitation program, building health shelters. I feel the time has come for a change where I feel the need of a broader vision. I, thought of an opportunity to do something in broadened way to help serve the population of Nepal. In the light of the health situation of my country and my role as a son in this land, is to help address the root causes of the problems to tackle the aforementioned health related problems through my best efforts. It is also clear that there is a need of integrated approach directed with whole population strategies based on the principles of primary health care approach (WHO, 1976, revisited 2010) and principles of health promotion (WHO, 1984).
