About the Dr. GKC hunger strike in #Nepal March 28th, 2015

UPDATE April 3rd, 2015 – here is a link to Nepali newspaper that describes the agreement to end the hunger strike and accede to the demands of Dr. GKC.

I occasionally blog on DailyKos in USA, a web page for political issues. I haven’t been active there lately, but today I wrote about the hunger strike here. I wanted to get some international solidarity with the NMC, NMSS, Dr GKC – and – everybody.

I know I am an expat, but I think some international pressure would help.

About Joe Niemczura, RN, MS

Experienced nursing educator and problem-solver. I have fifteen years of USA nursing faculty background. Add it with fifteen more devoted to adult critical care. In Nepal, I started teaching critical care skills in 2011. I figure out what they need to know in a Nepali practice setting. Then I teach it in a culturally appropriate way so that the boots-on-the-ground people will use it. I travel outside of Kathmandu Valley as well. When the recent violence happened, I knew the cities - I had trained people in those locations. One theme of my work has been collective culture and how it manifests itself in anger. Because this was a problem I incorporated elements of "situational awareness" training from the beginning, in 2011. Global Health Nursing is not all sweetness and light; not solely milk & honey and happy moms and babies.
