Chief of the Army Staff (CoAS) Prabhu Ram Sharma has said that the Nepali Army has been carrying out programmes in the health and education sector with high priority.

Addressing the 10th anniversary function of the Nepalese Army Institute of Health Sciences here today, CoAS Sharma urged everyone to be benefited from the priority given by the Army to the education and health sector.

He suggested to the Institute to also strengthen the moral aspect of the students by continuing the quality learning. The Army Chief urged the Institute to move ahead internalizing the rapid advancement, research and practices taking place internationally in the medical sector. "The timely progress, strengthening and modernization of any institution is inevitable," he said and called on the Institute to orient itself towards adopting modern teaching methodology.

According to him, it is a matter of pride for the Nepali Army to make contribution, albeit small, for the promotion of the overall education field of the country by means of the Institute and other educational institutions. He said the scope of these educational activities would be expanded in future.

The Army Chief believed that the Institute will provide world-class medical education in the coming days by building on its present achievements.

Institute's Executive Director Prof Dr Nagendra Bahadur KC said the Nepalese Army Institute of Health Services (NAIHS) is a not-for-profit medical education endeavor of Welfare Fund of the Nepali Army. It was established in 2011 AD. It is managed by the Welfare Planning Directorate of the Nepali Army.

Dean of the Tribhuvan University, Institute of Medicine (IOM), Prof Dr Divya Singh Shah said the NAIHS has played an important role in producing skilled human resources in the medical sector.

Vice Chair of the Council for Technical Education and Vocational Training (CTEVT) Khagendra Prasad Adhikari pointed out the need of paying attention to stopping the outflow of Rs 43 billion annually to foreign countries by Nepali students going for higher education abroad. Institutes like the NAIHS could contribute to this, he said.

Vice Chair of the Medical Education Council Prof Dr Shree Krishna Giri said the government has already started the process for removing the shortcomings in the Acts and Regulations related to the medical education.
