Kathmandu, July 31
The door-to-door healthcare service being provided to the elderly citizens in all 32 wards of Kathmandu Metropolitan City (KMC) hascome to a grinding halt after the doctors deputed were called back.
The KMC, in coordination with the Ministry of Health, had been giving medical attention to senior citizens reaching their doorsteps.
Of the total 596 elderly enlisted as beneficiaries in the first phase of medical care, only 350 have benefited by the programme that started on June 20 this year.
The newly elected mayor of KMC, Bidya Sundar Shakya, had announced to provide regular healthcare service to the senior citizens.
A team of 100 healthcare providers were deputed across various places in the KMC, according to KMC Joint-Spokesperson, Nawaraj Dhakal.
The programme is likely to be launched yet again within 10 days, Joint-Spokesperson Dhakal said, adding that the programme is aimed at helping the senior citizens develop positive thinking towards their life and providing them medical attention for them to enjoy good health.
