“I have been working to raise public health awareness, develop policies and plans, and advocate with the government for their implementation. Nepal’s population is diverse. People who are financially affluent have both awareness and money. Some middle-class people have money, while others have awareness. However, those who are economically poor lack both money and awareness. I collaborate with the government to conduct public awareness programs.”
