Phaplu Hospital is located in Solududhkunda Municipality-4 in Solukhumbu. In 1985, Himalayan Trust officially handed over the hospital to the government of Nepal and it is the only district hospital managed by government. HTN has continued its support to the hospital even after the hospital was handed over to the government. Himalayan Trust Nepal signed a twoyear MOU with the Phaplu hospital development and management board for the continuation of its medicine and staff incentive support. The support of the Himalayan Trust to Phaplu Hospital has enabled the doctors and staff at this hospital to maintain its quality medical services to the local community and also to keep the physical facilities in good order. The Sir Edmund Hillary- Stiftung Deutschland (SEHS), under the leadership of Mrs. Ingrid Versen, has been raising necessary funds in Germany to support the Phaplu Hospital for many years in the past and has been continuing up until today.
