XII ISMM World Congress on Mountain Medicine

International conferences provide learning and networking opportunities. However, many of these conferences are beyond the financial reach of many young medical students and doctors. This time, the twelfth iteration of the World Congress on Mountain Medicine is being organized in the heart of the Himalayas. It was felt that due to the international nature of this revolving congress, many young medical students and doctors from all over the world including Nepal may have difficulty in participating in the congress despite the highly subsidized fees especially for participants from low and middle income countries. Realizing this, Dr. Maniraj Neupane organized a closed fundraising campaign starting with his own pledge with an overall goal to provide scholarships to up to 100 deserving medical students, young doctors and researchers from all around the world. The campaign was  promptly endorsed by the International Society of Mountain Medicine (ISMM) which offered to match the equivalent amount raised up to 10000 USD. As of 3rd Nov 2018, Dr Neupane was able to raise 19002 USD from generous donors who believed in this cause along with the equivalent match from the ISMM.

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to the generous contributors to this campaign, listed in the chronological order they donated:
