This article deals with the author's personal perspectives while having to serve as a generalist in a rural hospital in one of the most underdeveloped and far away regions of Nepal. Having been deputed in Kalikot District Hospital (KDH) through Nick Simons Institute's (NSI) Rural Staff Support Program (RSSP), the author mentions the technical hardships and resource constraints of the government hospital. Highlighting the improvement in the hospital profile after the arrival of the RSSP, the article cursorily mentions the modalities of primary care spanning the common clinical presentations. Particularly, the difficulties related to the provision of Comprehensive Emergency Obstetric Care (CEOC) services are highlighted. Also, a brief introduction as to the NSI, Kathmandu is provided.
