U.S. Ambassador to Nepal Alaina B. Teplitz and Minister for Health and Population Ram Janam Chaudhary jointly unveiled plans to rebuild a new, earthquake-safe Bahrabise Primary Health Care Center (PHCC), today. The $1.9 million joint collaboration is funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and will be implemented by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), bringing together the Army Corps architectural and engineering know-how and USAID’s public health expertise. The project includes demolishing the existing buildings, reconstruction of the PHCC, and fully equipping it according to Ministry of Health standards.

America has stood with Nepal for 65 years and we continue to stand with Nepal as it regains its strength—with stronger homes, healthier families, abundant agricultural yields, and a more inclusive government. As we put the past year behind us, please take a moment to reflect on how far we have come, be mindful of the times when light shone through the dark, and know that in the coming years, the United States will journey onward with Nepal toward our shared vision – a more democratic, prosperous, and resilient Nepal.
