Unfortunately, leprosy still affects thousands of people in Nepal. We work with a leprosy and neurorehabilitation clinic in Pokhara. On a physiotherapy placement here, you'll work with both inpatients and outpatients you will gain an understanding of leprosy treatment and other specialised rehabilitation. As you work, the white-tipped peaks of the Annapurna mountain range (part of the Himalaya) are in your doorstep. Outside of placement, wind down with a hike into the stunning surroundings.
