Diarrhea Outbreak: ADRA’s Response To The Western Part Of Nepal
PDF File Size: 58 KB | Download   
The Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) Nepal is actively working to assist people affected by a diarrhea outbreak in the Mid-Western Region of Nepal.ADRA Nepal is treating patients at mobile health camps, providing medicines and sanitation materials, and raising community awareness on water treatment and hygiene. Since April 2009, about 200 people in mid-western Nepal have died due to a major diarrhea outbreak. Remote, isolated communities in numerous areas are seriously impacted, with Jajarkot and Rukum districts the hardest hit. The main causes are lack of clean drinking water and poor sanitation and hygiene. 30 medical staff are treating patients with diarrhea and other illnesses at mobile health camps in remote areas of Jajarkot and Rukum districts. So far, more than 600 cases have already been treated. The health camps are part of the “Providing Emergency Reproductive Health Services to Conflict Affected and Vulnerable Populations in Mid Western Nepal” project, which is funded by ECHO and UNFPA.
