The main mission of BPKIHS is to improve the health status of the people of Nepal by providing holistic health care through training of compassionate, caring, communicative and socially accountable health workforce acting as agents of change and through advancement in research and innovation in service as well as education to ensure healthy individuals and families by collaborating with all stakeholders.
In terms of achieving the educational goals of the Institute both the present curricula and future educational programmes are to be need-based, integrated, community-oriented and partially problem solving in line with innovative medical education programmes epitomized in the Edinburgh Declaration of 1988. These are the basic tenets on which BPKIHS curricula are based. In the area of service delivery, this Institute is committed to provide services not only to those coming to its teaching hospital but also to those who are not able to do so. This, the Institute does by reaching out to the community, which cannot reach the Institute. The mountain must go to Mohammed if Mohammed doesn’t go to the mountain. Outreach services are an integral part of the commitment, which the Institute has pledged to the legislators. It is not only reaching out to sick in the community but active promotion of positive health and through it, improvement in the status of the community health that will serve as a measure of attainment of our service goals. The faculty at BPKIHS is expected to monitor health indicators such as Infant Mortality Rate, Crude Birth Rate, Crude Death Rate, Blindness, Deafness and Disability rates etc. on an ongoing basis much in the same way as we monitor our individual patients in terms of established clinical parameters. Just as we intervene with different modalities of treatment when our individual patient are not making satisfactory progress. Such monitoring of community health indicators by the departments constitutes an important element in the overall process of evaluation of the Institute by internal an external evaluations.
