This description of Krishna Kumari Pun's work was prepared when Krishna Kumari Pun was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2008.
To end women’s isolation during labor, delivery, and the early post-partum period that leads to high maternal and infant mortality rates in Nepal, Krishna Kumari Pun has built a health care system based on women’s commitment to each other. Krishna’s holistic health care system and social change structures will not only raise the status of women in Nepal but will translate into increased economic and social development in Nepal.
