We went to see two hospitals and a health care center called BHU (Basic Health Unit). The purposes of this visit are seeing and learning about primary health care system in Bhutan. Bhutanese public health services seem to be based on spirits of Buddhism as shown in the Constitution of The Kingdom of Bhutan. Bhutanese people live a religious life, which we saw how is deep during this trip. Bhutanese medical system provides both modern and traditional medicine. The latter is Tibetan medicine", gSo-ba Rig-pa." It means science of healing in Tibetan. Tibetan system of medicine explain that sickness comes from the three poisons in Buddhism words: Greed, Anger, and ignorance. It emphasize on controlling lifestyle and meals to prevent and heal sickness which modern medicine have focused on recently. Another feature is a variety of unique medicines made of highlands’ herbs in Bhutan. All of hospitals are ornamented in a traditional way as they were a kind of temple. Bhutanese doctors and paramedics really devote themselves to public health services in Bhutan and make their hospital comfortable.
