After doing a health and damage assessment, an MSF team is setting up a clinic in Dhading district, a heavily affected area in the mountains to the north-west of Kathmandu, which is only reachable by helicopter and where little or no assistance has reached. While the most critically injured
people were evacuated in the days immediately after the earthquake, those remaining have been trapped in their villages as roads and walking tracks have been cut off by avalanches and landslides. MSF's teams are seeing
people in need of basic healthcare, as well as a number of people presenting with wounds sustained in the earthquake that have now become infected.
The team will work to spread the word in the surrounding villages that people can now come to the clinic to receive care.
