Nick Simons Institute
Since its establishment in Nepal in 2006, the
Nick Simons Institute (NSI) has received generous funding from the Nick Simons Foundation. Through trainings, support to district hospitals, and advocacy for the rural health worker, NSI focuses on the rural health worker as the cornerstone of a functioning healthcare system.
The Nick Simons Foundation is a private family foundation formed in 2005 to honor the memory of Nick Simons, his love for Nepal, and his interest in developing countries. The Foundation’s main focus is to improve health and medical care in Nepal, especially for rural and remote populations.
