The First Aid is given until appropriate professional help is received or until the crisis is over. The MHFA programme was originally created in 2001 by two Australian experts – Betty Kitchener and Professor Tony Jorm. It became international in 2003 and by 2010 it has been adopted and adapted by fifteen countries including Nepal. The important factor in its rapid spread has been the continuing attention to research and evaluation in the programme.

The dinner was well attended by members and guests. The dinner was hosted by Dr Dhiraj Tripathi and his family. During the dinner Dr Arun Jha highlighted the importance of MHFA in Nepal: Dementia module and future plan, including launching of Alzeimer’s and Dementia society in Nepal.

Charity Dinner 2010 

November 13th 2010, Sidcup, Kent

Nepalese Doctors Association UK hosted a CHARITY dinner, supporting the charity ECDC (Early childhood development centre). ECDC is doing an excellent work in educating children born to mothers in prisons in Nepal. As you know, if a mother goes to a prison in Nepal, her children often end up in the same prison  if there is no one else in the close family to look after them (this is often the case). The children do not usually have access to education and they grow up in the cells with their moms. Just take a moment to imagine the future of such children!

Some of the work ECDC have done is in the website: (Early Childhood Development Centre)

NDA (UK) executive committee would like to thank all members for generous contributions towards this charity.
