Ladakh is a geographical region in the state of Jammu and kashmir, India.
84% of ladakh's population lives in villages and rural areas which are not easy to reach due to the Himalaya Range.
Resources are scarce, no hospitals or close by healthcare services nearby, making everyday life difficult in this harsh environment.
Infant mortality rate is among the highest in the world, and during delivery many women die, from preventable causes.
For centuries, the only medical system, which was accessible to Ladakhis, has been the am chi.
Amchis are traditional doctors following Tibetan medicine , which is an important component of public health especially in remote areas.
