Petition seeks resumption of services at Bir Hospital

REPUBLICA
KATHMANDU, July 31: A writ petition has been filed at the Supreme Court on Thursday demanding resumption of the services at the National Academy of Medical Sciences (NAMS), Bir Hospital, that has remained stalled since Sunday.

The petition filed by advocate Sunil Ranjan Singh and Shova Chandra Mishra argues that closure of the services has deprived the people of essential health services. [More]

Time and again we hear of top leaders going abroad for medical treatment on state-funded expenses. Should there be a cutoff on how much the state spends on its sick leaders? The Week asked a few people for their take on the matter.


The budget for leaders´ treatments should definitely be limited. If they have to go abroad for health treatment, why can’t they go to Singapore or Bangkok where the health treatment is cheaper than, say, in the US or Europe?

Besides, the trend of leaders going abroad for health treatment points to the shoddy health system at home. Leaders should get their treatment in Nepal because that’s what the general public does. And for that, they will first of all need to improve the health system at home. This will also have the benefit of developing the health sector.
