INF Australia works through the hospitals and health programs of INF Nepal for the holistic care of all Nepali people, especially poor or disadvantaged patients.

We view health as the combination of physical, psychological and spiritual wellbeing. Our health and disability programs are unique because they provide for the whole person.

This includes surgery, medical therapies, counselling, training and self-care, telehealth and telerehab. It also covers financial and practical support for families experiencing poverty. Patients, their families and communities are encouraged to be part of advocacy groups and campaigns calling for greater awareness, respect and inclusion of people with disabilities.

Green Pastures Hospital (GPH) in Pokhara is at the heart of INF Nepal's medical and clinical work. It aims to become a centre of excellence in the holistic care and treatment of disabilities in order to transform lives.

INF Nepal's work provides treatment and rehabilitation of patients affected by leprosy, spinal cord injury, cerebral palsy, and other forms of disability.

80% of Nepali people living with a disability have no access to the specialist medical care that could transform their lives. INF Nepal’s vision is to bring healing and hope to people with a disability, their families, and communities through specialist hospitals and community outreach programs.
