The Leading Lady in

The Leading Lady in Healthcare Prof. Dr. Chanda Karki (Obstetrician and Gynaecologist) Principal, Kathmandu Medical College 8 Versatile | MARCH-CHAITRA 2018

Cover Story A quintessential genius with a remarkable success story, Dr Karki stands as the leading lady of Nepal’s healthcare sector. Ingenious yet humble, headstrong yet graceful, she is an epitome of simplicity. Born in Mahottari, she was raised by parents that advocated formal education as a part of the family culture. As a child, she drew inspiration from her surrounding and at a very young age figured what she wanted to become when she grew up. Her pursuit to that goal is a story of toilsome experience filled by knowledge, skill and a steady passion to save lives. It began when she migrated from her village to Kathmandu for higher education. After being denied enrollment by many for being a ‘Madhes girl’ she was finally enrolled to Padmakanya campus by her uncle. As she topped the SLC board, the world knew that she does not take any opportunity for granted and exams were just stepping stones on a path that led to her ambition. Dr Karki is the reigning Principle of Kathmandu Medical College, a leading medical institute. She holds prestigious positions as Executive Member to the Senate, Kathmandu University (KU), Executive Member of Nepal Medical Council, Member of International Review Board (IRB) of Centre for Research on Environment Health and Population Activities (CREHPA). Besides her professional affiliations to health sector, she has also been rendering her expert service in social causes and advocating family health through public and private organisations. At home, she is a proud mother of two daughters (both doctors and happily married she shares with pride in her eyes) and a beloved wife. Also in stolen moments, she is a singer, songwriter and, a literature fan. Despite her rich profile, she leads a simple life and celebrates with contentment. Versatile | MARCH-CHAITRA 2018 9
