Malnutrition can be decreased by asking for international aid for food supplies and volunteers can present these supplies when they arrive to the small towns outside of the urban cities. This by no means will solve the 29% of malnourished children under the age of 14 but it could help decrease the statistic (South Asia, 2015). Education about the transmission of HIV/ AIDS and TB would also be appropriate. With improved education of the trained Nepali healthcare providers and general population, there is more opportunity for healthcare success in this blossoming country.

From then the Emperor Francis Joseph would have the title of King of Hungary.
