At The Heart of The Earthquake Epicenter: Addressing Reproductive Health Needs in Gorkha
PDF File Size: 827 KB | Download   
Kabita BK got married at the age of 16. At only 17 she gave birth to her first child at home with the help of a traditional birth attendant. Now at 20 Kabita is pregnant with her second child, but this time she wants to give birth in a health facility. She lost her house in the devastating earthquake and has been living in a temporary shelter since. In preparation to her baby’s arrival Kabita visited the reproductive health camp in Gankhu Village Development Committee (VDC) of Gorkha, close to her current shelter, which was carried out in the aftermath of the earthquake.After a medical consultation with a gynecologist and a series of tests she says cheerfully:“This is the first time that I am having an ultrasound done and I am very happy to see that my baby is healthy. It’s convenient to have a maternal facility in our own village”. “The long distance to the hospital in our district headquarters makes it difficult to get check-ups and medical services in those facilities are too expensive. ”However, with a large number of birthing facilities damaged, the specific needs of many women of reproductive age could not be met. While such services were being restored, a total of 10 reproductive health camps were conducted in 10 VDCs in the district by the District Public Health Office (DPHO) and CARE with technical and financial support of UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund.
