The purpose of JMT's outreach programs are to take cardiac care closer to the doorsteps of many who are unable to avail these services due to financial, health or travel constraints.
Free Cardiac Camps

Patients requiring immediate tertiary treatment are referred/brought for treatment at SGNHC/MCVTC as per the policy of the organization and financial resources at disposal.
Donation of PT/INR Machines
Post surgery care is given equal importance by JMT. Many patients post surgery or on WARFARIN require to undergo PT/INR test every month to ensure the dosage of their medication , which if not done routinely could lead to critical situation and sometime loss of life. However, there being very limited places to avail this service, patients tend to forgo routine check. Therefore, to ease the hazadarous travel long distance and preventing undue expensive , JMT has distributed PT/INR machines to 14 locations all over Nepal. The cost per testing is relatively cheaper , the facility is available relatively closer to their hometown and patients get one month of WARFARIN free per episode.
