Himalayan Health Initiative


Himalayan Health Initiative is a 501(c) (3) Non-profit organization dedicated to the service of the needy in the Himalayan region. Our main focus is improving healthcare for the poor.

Dr. Lobsang T. Lhungay established Himalayan Health Initiative seeing the need for an entity that could work toward improving healthcare in the Himalayan region including places like Nepal, which is one of the least developed countries in the world. Dr. Lhungay who himself grew up in Nepal is in a unique position to understand where our mission could be most effective.

Himalayan Health Initiative’s efforts have been focused mostly on segments of society that is most neglected & vulnerable such as the elderly & sick. For the present Earthquake Relief work in Nepal we are working closely with ANPA (Association of Nepalese Physicians in America).
