We the undersigned express our deepest concern at critical and growing shortages of essential and life-saving medicines and supplies at health care facilities across Nepal, as well as ongoing fuel supply issues that are severely impeding service delivery and the ability to access these services. In recognition of the right to timely access to quality health care services, as enshrined in the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and as detailed in the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights General Comment No. 14 on The Right to the Highest Attainable Standard of Health, we emphasize the seriousness of the present situation and its humanitarian implications. We remain committed to supporting the Government of Nepal in its efforts to ensure safe access to quality health care services.
