  • EDUCATIONAL FACILITY PROJECT IN CHAZHU VALLEY CLINIC. The doctors (Western, Chinese and Tibetan), nurses, teachers, translators, school kids, monks, nuns and other interested people, will use the facility. Through this facility, we will invite professionals to give seminars and workshops to the clinic personnel, local staff and general public on local environment, health issues, personal hygiene and community sanitation. The facility will consist of Western, Chinese and Tibetan medical books as well as technological support equipment:
  • SOLAR ENERGY. The use of clean energy resources, such as solar energy, will make a positive impact on traditional Tibetan life and protect the local environment.
  • TUBERCULOSIS CONTROL & TREATMENT PROGRAM. Tuberculosis (TB) is a contagious disease rampant throughout the Tibetan Plateau. The World Health Organization (WHO) has stated that the incidence among Tibetan rug-weavers is the highest in the world. The disease is found throughout the ChaZhu Valley where the Health Clinic sponsored by the TibetanAid Foundation (TAF) is located. The TAF plans to work diligently to address this manifest health problem. Click here...
