The aim of this study was to try to identify significant differences between the current provision of medical care to the Nepalese community in Brunei and the ideal provision taking into account their cultural values. The Nepalese were found to be very willing to accept education on medical matters and a significant gap in their knowledge of modern medicine was confirmed. Their culture and social structure requires thought to be given to the sex of the medical personnel, the provision of joint consultations and the tolerance of traditional medical practices when providing medical care to such a population.
