Abstract

The diverse topography of Nepal, neutral economy, unstable government and improper budget allocation have impacted one of the most important infrastructure of development that is road transportation. Such critical scenario has severely impacted the quality health care of grievous patients of rural Nepal. The lack of proper transport facility, ambulance deficiency, large distance to be covered to reach primary health care centres and further more rigorous travel to tertiary care centres in urban areas have led to on-way death of maximum number of serious patients of rural Nepal.  Moreover this has become very strong health care obstacle for developing country like Nepal.
