Eight hours walk for a single dose of paracetamol !!!

Natives of Mayana and Suil villages of Jayprithvi municipality are forced to walk eight hours for basic health services. With nearest health post taking 4 hours of walking to reach, ill people are having a hard time, both physically and economically. Six people, including two children and two pregnant women, have lost their lives in the past two years because of inaccessibility to essential health services. Long travel even for a single dose of paracetamol has precipitated a troubling tendency of not seeking medical care at all and leading unhealthy lives in the villages, a local female health volunteer remarks.
