Title: Financial burden and outreach of Diabetes clinics for patients in Nepal


Biography: Dipak Mall


Financial burden and outreach of diabetes clinics for patients in Nepal: In the capital city of Nepal,there are only two hospital based endocrinology referal centers,which is run 6 days a week with loads of around 120 patients a day with 2-3 doctors handling the burden. Most of the patients visiting higher centers are from remote areas of Nepal who travel for around half a day or whole day o reach doctors clinics. As per trend from 2006 to 2014 the per capita income of Nepal is increased by $327 to $ 426.48 according to world bank.Now we can see how much is a burden for patients who need oral hypoglycemic agents and insulin therapy everyday to fight with diabetes. Only few studies are being studies carried out in Nepal which states that the cost of intial visit to doctor with laboratory investigations and treatment cost around Nepalese Rupee 3000 to 4500($20 and $35) which patiens have to bear on self, which dosent include personal and travel cost. Though the tertiary centers are located in centers of the capital,most of the patients visiting government hospitals are from remote and nearby villages,who visit tertiery centers not as a initial presentation but with complications.Which states that the financial burden to the patients are increased more with screening for Diabetes retinopathy,Nephropathy,peripheral vascular diease,diabetes foot examination and use of insulin therapy.
