PM calls for producing skilled human resource in health sector

KATHMANDU, MARCH 22: Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ has said the country should emphasize the production of skilled human resources in the health sector as per international standards.

Addressing the 13th meeting of the Medical Education Commission today, the PM stressed the production of quality human resources through an analysis of the national and international contexts and needs. The PM viewed that there should be harmonization between the produced human resources and decent jobs.

“The Commission should be proactive in fulfilling and implementing the quality standards. Besides increasing the number of skilled human resources, fulfilling the minimum standards of teaching and learning is equally imperative and important,” the PM directed.

He said Nepal’s education system should be established as a centre of excellence for the foreign students coming to Nepal for getting medical education. The increasing trend of foreign students in Nepal as stated in the report of the Commission is an evidence of attraction to Nepal’s medical education, the PM viewed.
