“High quality, High volume,
Affordable eye care services”

The Eastern Regional Eye Care Programme (EREC-P) in South-East Nepal is a further development of Sagarmatha Choudhary Eye Hospital (SCEH), Lahan. In order to balance the work load of SCEH and to increase the scope for long-term human resource sustainability, Biratnagar Eye Hospital (BEH) was started in Biratnagar, Nepal’s second largest city 130 km east of Lahan, in September 2006.
