This community diagnosis, field study survey mainly for learning purpose so that how we conduct any programme in future. The primary purpose of this diagnosis was to identify the real health status and for getting the detailed information about demographic situation, socio-economic status ,environmental status , health seeking behavior, MH, Family planning and child health situation. This report of community diagnosis is submitted to the public health department. This report id the output of community diagnosis field study conducted in Bonch VDC of Dolakha district by an effort of term students of BPH 2nd year of Valley College of technical sciences, Mid-Baneshwor within one month.

1.1 Background Sweeping changes are taking place in the field of health. In most of the developing country like Nepal, people are living unhealthy life cultivating many health problems within them and their surroundings. No matter how advanced, intensive and extensive the medical services are, yet it has not been able to cope successfully with community health problems. Owing to this perspective, community health diagnosis proves its essence.

Community health diagnosis is defined as "a comprehensive assessment of the state of an entire community in relation to its social (includes cultural, political factors) physical and biological environment. The purpose of this diagnosis is to define existing problems, mine available resources and set priorities for the planning, organizing and implementing health actions or programs of health care by and for, or with the community." CHD, a course of second year including a month field work, is not only problem based learning but importantly is community oriented learning, directed toi) To find out health and disease status of a community by examining and analyzing the pattern of factors influencing the health and disease condition of a community. ii) To modify/change knowledge, attitude and practice of people through appropriate health programs.

In this competent age of globalization, with the aim of providing extensive courses in public health and health science through systematic management in producing technically socially responsible human manpower in health lead to the establishment of Valley college of Technical Sciences 2065, in the affiliation with P.U.


This reports paints the vivid portrait of one month long community Health Diagnosis of Bonch VDC, Dolakha which was composed a team of BPH students of second year from Valley College of Technical Sciences, Mid Baneshwor.

Through the application of different means and mediums of health education, our team diligently collected the health information of Bonch VDC from primary and secondary sources. To this regard, we do hope that a report presented in this document will help the community and nation visualize the real health status of its people and encourage for uplifting health situation of the people.

1.2 Objectives of our study General objective To identify and the health problems and the factors for their causation and help community people to solve the prioritized health problems/needs by conducting the Micro Health Project (MHP) by the maximum exploration and utilization of local resources. Specific objectives To assess the present health status of Bonch VDC. To find out the health seeking behavior. To find out the hidden health problems. To identify the underlying causes of the prevailing health problems. To explore the available resources. To prioritize the health needs and launch MHP. To handover the MHP to the community for its sustainability. To develop working skill at community


1.3 Village Profile VDC District : : Bonch Dolakha 13 km west from the district headquarter Charikot, 125 km east Boundary : from the capital city Kathmandu.

Distance :

Lakure dada in the West, Sindhupalchowk district Chokati VDC in the North and Bhimsen Nagarpalika in East gives the shape to the VDC. Charnawati River divides VDC from Bhimsen Nagarpalika. And in South Magapauwa VDC.

VDC is shoe shaped pointed or marginalized slowly towards ward no. 6. Located on the mountainous region the VDC is full of natural beauty with temperate climatic condition. Most of the people are engaged in agriculture. However some of people are attracted towards foreign job. The major productions are wheat, rice, oats etc. Total wards in VDC Total no. of household Total population: Religion Major ethnic group Brahmin, Kshetri and : : : : : 9 803 4065 Hindu, Buddha and Christian Tamang, Dalit (kami,damai,sarki),


The most important characteristic of the VDC was the presence of Small scale Nepali paper Industry where use of local resources is made at maximum level. Beside this there is Agriculture form Krishi which works under the Government in the field of Horticulture, Production of major crops, and Animal Husbandry as well.

There are few number of Developmental partners working in VDC, working in welfare of marginalize people. 62

Talking about the geographical accessibility of Health Care Service Providers, we found the people of ward no 4 and 6 much deprived from the facility. It simply takes 2 hours of walking to reach the HP. There is black pebbled road extending towards the district headquarter Charikot touching ward number 8,9,7,5,3,2,1. It would be more clarified via the social map we present here.

2.3 Data sources Primary data Household head or family members Local leaders Health staffs and FCHVs Married women of the community Aama samuhas leaders Secondary data Health post records VDC of Bonch

2.4 Validity and Reliability Pre-testing of questionnaires and checklists. To reduce selection bias, the study strictly followed the sampleframe Discussion over questionnaire before data collection and everyday discussion on the collection. Self checking and cross checking (consistency checking and completeness checking). Supervision and guidance from the faculties. procedure was followed during the data

2.5 Limitations of the study Selection of mixed household of sampling frame due to absence of members of sampling house. Inability to meet some mothers of under-5 children due to unfavorable topography and time selected for community diagnosis. Some of the respondents were the household head: it may lead to biased answers on KAP of diseases and service utility and also in gender related matters.


2.6 Ethical consideration Permission was taken from VDC office Purpose and objectives of the study were explained and verbal consent was taken from each respondent Assurance of confidentiality of the information Freedom was given to the respondent to skip any question during interview process Dignity of the individuals was highly considered Low profile was maintained so as not to let them put high expectations 2.7 Organization of field work Financial support and transportation Campus had provided Rs4500 per person.Two way transportation was also provided by the campus. Lodging and Fooding The group stayed at Bonch VDC from Chaitra 27th to Baisakh 28th for one month. We stayed in a house in ward no.7. The house owner managed kitchen for us. Health education materials The health education materials were brought from Health post (Bonch VDC). Stationeries and first aid The campus provided some of the stationeries and the group managed rest. Set of questionnaire, first aid box were also provided by the campus. Pattern of group working Each and every members of the group was fully committed to his/her work. Decisions were made after consultation in the group. Though group work was the dominant feature, some special work assigned to each individual for whom he/she had authority to take decisions lying within the group norms.


CHAPTER III: DEMOGRAPHY 3.1Findings from our study

3.1.1 Demography "There is simply nothing so important to a people and its government as how many of them there are, whether their number is growing or declining, how they are distributed as between different ages, sexes and different social classes and social and ethnic groups, and again which way these number are moving.." By: Daniel Patrick Demography, a scientific study of population is especially concerned with following facts: structure (size and composition) events that brings changes in the size of population (due to): Fertility Migration, and Mortality

Characteristics and distribution. we first collected data regarding above facts and then using various demographic tools and techniques analyzed and shaped the data into manageable form as raw number, rates, ratios and other types of statistic and observed parameters were compared with the national and district figure.

The main components that we have included in this chapter are:

1) Size, Composition and Distribution:

Population Size Age-sex composition

Ethnic wise sex distribution

2) Components that brings changes in size (vital statistics):

Fertility Mortality

3) Disability


4) Characteristics of population a) Socio- economic status i.Family composition ii.Occupation iii. Literacy iv.Educational status v. Food sufficiency b) Socio-cultural status i. Religious ii. Language iii. Smoking habit iv. Alcoholism v. Tobacco

Population growth is the primary source of environmental damage

Figure 2: Population pyramid of Bonch VDC

A population pyramid graphically displays a populations age and sex composition, by showing numbers or proportions of males and females in each age group, the pyramid gives a vivid picture of a population characteristics. The sum of the age-groups in the pyramid equals 100 percent population. Population pyramid of Bonch VDC shows that the population of age group 0-4 and 5-9 years is less than of age group 10-14 and 15-19 years. This may be the consequences of decreasing no. of fertility and shows the effective use of contraceptives to prevent the birth.


The population of age group of 0-9 and 10-19 years is higher with
comparison to other age group which shows the high rate of fertility 10-19 years back.

The female population of age group of 30-34 is less with comparison to

other age group. This may be due to various complications to mother during child bearing.

Likewise, male population tends to be little bit higher than female in the
age above 80 years. It indicates survival rate of male is slightly higher than that of female

This pyramid resembles with the pyramid of developing countries (more

people in younger age group

3.1.3 Fertility
Fertility shows the rate of population increase. It means the number of live birth the women have .One of the important measure of fertility is CBR. Crude birth rate is the total number of live birth per thousand midyear population. In Bonch the CBR was found to be 12.96 per1000.

3.1.4 Morbidity
From our study top 5 diseases prevalent in last 1 year were found to be as follow: Table 2: Top 5 diseases Rank 1 2 3 4 5 Disease of Bonch VDC Lower respiratory tract diseases Skin disease Pyrexia of Unknown Origin Diarrhea disorders Gastritis National 2007 Annual report Skin diseases Acute respiratory infections Ear Infections Sore eye and complaints Urinary tract infection


3.2 Socio-economic status

The V.D.C. was BrahminChhetri dominated with having Dalits community in ward no.9. Regarding the major source of occupation, it was agriculture. The flow of human resources to foreign countries was also found considerable. Apparently, the V.D.C. seemed to be surviving by agriculture but our survey showed more than half of population didnt harvest food sufficient for whole year. They seek alternatives for living .i.e. 59.4%, followed by service ,16.4%,business 8.5%, labor 8.2%,Remittance 3.2%, and others 4.3%

3.2.2 Source of Income

In Bonch V.D.C., more number of people was involved in agriculture and less number of people was involved in remittance. So, their economic condition is not good 59.40% 60.00% 50.00% 40.00% 30.00% 20.00% 10.00% 0.00%






Figure 3: Main source of income


3.2.3 Food sufficiency from agriculture production

As we already discussed that agriculture is the main source of income. Most of the family has their own land; it is seldom sufficient for survival and may have to supplement their income with low wage labor. In Bonch V.D.C., we found about 41.4% had food sufficient for 6 months, likewise 6.6% for more than 1 year



0-6month 52% 6-12month 41.40% 12 and above 6.60%

3.3 Environmental Sanitation Environmental sanitation determines the health status of a community to a great extent Imbalance in the relation between man and his environment leads to illhealth 1) Supply of drinking water and purification method 2) Waste disposal (solid, liquid) 3) Human excreta disposal system

3.3.1 Supply of water

Water supply is a major part of the environmental sanitation .water supply at Bonch V.D.C. was studied in terms of distance of the source from the homes and water treatment pattern .The following table shows the different water sources used.

In the Bonch V.D.C., around 89.8% household use tap water and around 0.78% household uses. River water and may be others.Except few household there is available of tap water but, it is not adequate to fulfill their requirements.


Thus they are obliged to fetch water from the river which is quite muddy during monsoon and of course unhygienic owing to open defecation .If only safe and wholesome water can be supplied to the community ,the incidence of diseases will go down dramatically

3.3.2 Liquid waste management Kitchen garden was one of the most used methods of draining waste water in Bonch VDC and feeding cattle is the least one used.



15.60% 65.60%

kitchen garden 65.60% thrown haphazardly 15.60% cattle feeding 13.30% others 5.50%

Figure 7 Liquid waste management

3.3.3 Solid waste management The term solid waste includes garbage and food waste, rubbish (plastic, wood, metal, throw away, and containers, glassed), Demolition products (bricks, masonry, pipes), dead animals and other discarded animals. It is solid that there is correlation between improper disposal of solid waste and incidence of vector born diseases. Solid waste, it allow to accumulate it create health hazards because it attracts flies, rodents and vermin and causes water and soil pollution


In Bonch VDC majority of household, about 35.2% used burning, about 32.4% used composting, 16.8% was thrown waste haphazardly, around 13.3% buried the waste and remaining 2.3% used other methods of disposing the solid waste like reusing or recycling for other works.

Burning 35.20% composting 32.40% Thrown haphazardly 16.80% Buried 13.30% others method 2.30%


Figure 8 Solid waste management 3.3.4 Latrine Latrine means where human excreta is thrown out .Since Bonch VDC is rural, most of the had latrine around 84% household have latrine and rest 16% use of open toilet. We can see on the following charts: From above data we can conclude, most of the people used toilet and least number of household had no toilet in Bonch VDC.

Due to different problems there is lack of toilets in some households of Bonch. Though they know about the necessity of the toilet there are many problems.

In Bonch V.D.C., 48% of 214 household did not build latrine due to lack of money and 10% did not build latrine because they did not feel that latrine is necessary.

3.3.5 Personal Hygiene The Word Hygiene is Derived from the Greek word hygiene i.e. goddess of health in Greek mythology. She is a beautiful woman holding her hand a bowel from which serpent is drinking (art of healing). Thus, science of health and embraces all factors which contribute to healthful living practices; nail cutting, bathing and hand washing.

3.3.6 Habit of brushing teeth Brushing Tooth properly helps to prevent plaque, carries and other gingival diseases. An ideal time of tooth brushing is around two minutes twice daily after meal Fluoride tooth paste should be used for tooth brushing .as whole brushing tooth condition is good around 95% household has tooth brushing habit. 95% of sample population used to brush and 5% does not used to brush.

3.3.7 Material used to brush teeth Many people in country side used twigs of neem trees as a tooth brush; some used ashes and some charcoal. Educated and those who have come is contact with urban life used toothbrush. since it is the rural V.D.C., about 90% of 78

villagers use tooth paste 6% uses coal, 3% uses teeth stick (datiwan ) and 1% others.

Figure 16: Material used to brush teeth 3.3.8 Practice of hand washing before meal Hand washing practice is one of the major personal health hygiene behaviors. It helps to protect from different kind of communicable diseases. From the data collected in Bonch V.D.C. we found that, 51% of 256 respondent uses soap-water to wash hand before meal, similarly 46.6% uses water only, 1% ashes, 1% sand and soil and 0.4% did not use any of the above. They said they did not wash their hand before their meal.

Figure 17: Practice of hand washing before meal


3.3.9 Practice of hand washing after using toilet Hand washing practice is the most important component in personal hygiene. This practice also prevents from different communicable diseases

In Bonch V.D.C., we found that, 66.8% of 256 respondents use soap-water to wash hand after the use of toilet. Whereas, 13.3% uses ashes, 5.1% uses water only, 2.3% uses sand-soil and 2.7% uses other measures. Also, 9.8% of the villagers did not practice any of the above, which is a very poor result.

Figure 18: Practice of hand washing after using toilet 3.4) Attitude and Practices on health and diseases Knowledge is the understanding or familiarity gained by experience, it is a range of information acquire. Attitude is the way of thinking, or a settled opinion and the Practice means the way of doing something that is common, habitual or done regularly. Knowledge, attitude and practice are the triad of health education.

In Bonch VDC, knowledge level in people is found good but the practice are lacking. Most of the people are found unknown about many diseases when they become sick, they seek traditional healers .and at a time they feel the essence of health post and Medicine, it has already become late and no option to throw unhealthy body to purgatory. This withdraws the real scenario of community people.Diseases is a condition of pathological change inside the body which make or people illness man 80

3.4.1 Information on causation of communicable disease Majority i.e. 67% of the people said lacks of environmental sanitation, then 13% Said due to contaminated water and food, 10% Have no idea about how it cause and 5% said due to microorganism ,2% said due to curseof god and 3% said other cause.

3.5 Immunization Nepal started Expanded Program on Immunization (EPI) in 1979, in three districts as a pilots program. This was extended to all 75 districts by 1988 with all 7 recommended antigens.


Nepal joined the global polio eradication initiative in 1996, with Implementation of supplementary immunization activities in a form of National Immunization Days (NID), and intensified polio surveillance activities.

The overall goal of the national immunization Program of Nepal i.e. to reduce child mortality and morbidity occurring due to vaccine preventable disease.

Immunization is one of the most cost effective health interventions to prevent serious infectious disease. Immunization describes the process of inducing immunity artificially by administrating antigenic agents. Universal

immunization of children less than 1 year of age against the 7 vaccine preventable disease in reducing infant and child morbidity and mortality.

MICRO HEALTH PROJECT 4.3 Micro health project

As the name says micro we can conceptualize micro health project as the short term health project which is launched at the community after the systematic prioritization of the real need which we get by unifying observed need from outsiders and felt needs from the community itself. There is maximum utilization of the local resources which include human resources, materials, money, time, information etc. with the combined and effective participation with the local people. Micro health project doesnt seek much help from the government side. Its just the miniature form or a kind of small scale project for the people, by the people and to the people of the community. MHP is concerned with the implementation of the health action or activity. In another words we can generally term MHP as intervention. The soul reason behind launching the MHP, or conducting health intervention or action is to solve the real health need or the real health problem of the community. So weve got the following:

4.3.1 Importance of MHP

Helps to neutralise or solve the problem as soon as possible It helps for the maximum utilization of the local resources. It provides the sense of unity to the local people for the solving their problem themselves with the spirit of self reliance and the self determination. It tries to develop and conceptualize to build the positive attitude towards health and healthy leaving. Final or the ultimate goal of MHP is to control the disease prevalence.

4.3.2 Goal of MHP

To raise awareness of community people by providing health education on real health needs as below a) MCH/FP b) HIV/AIDS c) Diarrhoea


4.3.3 Objectives of MHP

To encourage pregnant womens for antenatal visits To raise awareness about institutional delivery To demonstrate the preparation of sarbottam pitho( super flour) To encourage target couple to use family planning methods and devices. To aware people on early diagnosis of T.B. Group A, about a one month stay at the community at the Bonch VDC, found various health needs which we call it observed needs. After the collection of the data we analysed thus data and listed the observed needs of the community. And then we called local people along with the key persons of the community for listening their need and we thus found their felt need as well. Then we submerged the observed and the felt need and prepared a list of the real health need of the community and finally we prioritized such real health needs with the community people and we ranked the real needs. Finally we launched the MHP on the heading of the awareness program about MCH/FP , awareness about HIV/AIDS and STIs", "adolescent health, awareness about malnutrition" "awareness about Diarrhoea" which was ranked on the top most position after the prioritization of the real needs. We launched the MHP for two consecutive days at two different places. Observed needs, felt needs and real needs are listed as below

4.3.4 Observed needs

These are the needs observed by outsiders. Observed needs are determined by us after the process of data analysis. We conceived the following needs to be the health needs of Bonch VDC. 1. Promotion of maternal and child health awareness. 2. KAP on HIV/AIDS 3. KAP on ORS and sarbottom pitho Preparation


4. KAP on Family planning measure 5. Lack of consumption of Iodised salt 6. Home Delivery 7. KAP on environment sanitation 8. Extension of health service. 9. KAP on TB, 10. KAP on malnutrition. 11. Lack of waste management 12. KAP on HIV/AIDS 13. Health institution delivery. 14. Use of iodised salt.

4.3.5 Felt needs

Those needs which are felt by the community people are known as felt needs. Felt needs of the community were determined by the sound discussion with community key leader, FCHVs, HWs and local people. After discussion local people concreted the following felt needs. 1. Awareness about Safe motherhood and MCH and F/P 2. KAP on HIV/AIDS 3. KAP on TB 4. KAP on Nutritious 5. KAP on ARI and diarrhoea. 6. Uterus Prolapsed 7. Distribution of essential drugs from health post 8. Regular free health check up camps


4.3.6 Real needs

Real needs are those needs which are believed to be actual needs. In other words validity of the real needs is sent percent. Real health needs are listed by submerging or unifying both of the felt and observed needs. We finalised following set of real health needs of Bonch VDC under which the prioritised real health need will be launched as MHP. 1. Awareness about Safe motherhood and MCH and F/P 2. KAP on HIV/AIDS 3. KAP on TB, Pneumonia &Polio 4. Use of iodised salt 5. KAP on diarrhoea 6. KAP on super flour and ORS preparation.

4.3.7 Prioritization of Real Need

Prioritization programme was carried out in presence of community key leaders HWs, FCHVs and local people. And major things that were considered during prioritization were magnitude of the problem, availability of the resources, cost benefit and cost analysis, acceptability in local cultural setting, budget, infrastructure, time limits etc

4.3.8 Implementation of MHP

To meet our objective which was set we launched the MHP for two consecutive days dated 2067 Baisakh 26 and 27. We invited all the community people along with the strict presence of HWs, FCHVs and key leaders at the corresponding place and time. At the first day, our MHP was launched under the heading of awareness about the malnutrition since we found there was maximum ignorance about malnutrition and the misconception regarding the treatment of malnutrition as well. It was launched to the FCHVs because they were the key or the measure to disseminate the light of knowledge about the very real health need. There was 12 FCHV's present. MHP was conducted for about 1 hour at the health post in 26th of Baisakh.


At the second day of our MHP i.e. on 27th Baisakh 2067, MHP site was at Shree Devi Higher Secondary school ward no.9 Bonch VDC, where we invited all the members of the community. Topics of MHP were: a) Awareness about Safe motherhood and MCH and F/P b) Awareness about HIV/AIDS c) Awareness about Diarrhoea We used the resources or materials available at the health post. MHP was successfully ended. There was huge presence of the community people. Under the MHP not only the topics about the ANC visits, essential drugs, nutrition, etc were elaborated also the birth preparedness, INC and PNC were stated. Methods and devices of F/P were also discussed with community people. After that, awareness about HIV/AIDS was kept forward. DOTS, S/S, prevention were promptly described to the community people. Each topic was divided among the 10 group members who gave health education about related topics. We tried our best to elaborate the subject matters more practically.

5.2 Recommendation to the community

Continuation of the awareness raising programmes should be carried out Institutional delivery should be increased and use of SDK in home delivery should be encouraged There should be co-ordination between several NGOs, INGOs, stake holders and service providers for fruitful health care. People should utilize properly the free health service provided by government Environmental sanitation programme should be carried out in regular interval of time 2

5.3 Learning Reflections

Our study group has learnt to adopt in real field situation. Rapport building is difficult task. Tackling with the difficulties is the key to solve the problem in the community. Intersectoral Co-ordination is important to identify resources and to evaluate achievements. Developing competencies to conduct different forms and informal programs (meetings, mass awareness program) requires confidence and exposure. Application of theory into practice requires different types of modifications in it. Changing the behavior and attitude of people is not an easy task
