Health care services are free in Bhutan!
We have a mandate for free health care, well-managed policies and consistent investments for public health care for several decades. Despite our laudable progress and achievements in the health sector, there is still room for focus and improvements.
The National Society focuses on building the health response system capacity to deal with the emergencies and also focuses on building the capacity of the communities to play an active role in delivering the health care services during the time of disaster and crisis.
We train our national, regional and community volunteers on Non- Medical First Aid Services, believing the community engagement the tool to reach the services far and on time.
