B. P. Koirala Memorial Cancer Hospital (BPKMCH) is the first national cancer center of its kind for the fight against cancer in Nepal. The felt need of the hour was a competent establishment that would be able to fulfill the need of the people of Nepal. In a country rife with poverty, illiteracy the harsh geographical terrain and an almost negligible access to basic health facilities, this institution is envisioned to bridge that gap. Though there are no national survey records, it is estimated that deaths due to cancer are approximated at 120 per 100,000. And the assumption is that there are 35000 to 40000 cancer patients in the country at any given space of time. This hospital provide high quality services for the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and research on Cancer, and to gain self-reliance in human resource required for the same.
