"WFP And UNFPA Provide Critical Food Aid and Medical Care to Drought Victims in Mugu And Humla District
PDF File Size: 12 KB | Download   
The united nations world food programmer and the united nations population fund joined forces last week to provide essential food aid and reproductive health care to hundreds of drought-affected families in mugu and humla districts.In response to WFP field monitors reporting a high prevalence of illnesses among families in the district, WFP requested UNFPA to conduct mobile reproductive health clinics during planned WFP food distributions inthe area. we think jointly reaching out to the country most isolated citizens is the way to go. WFP and UNFPA very retail or people-oriented approach in nepal could serve as a model for the region, said WFP Country representative, richard ragan.the dawn to dusk health clinics, medical staff treated nearly 2000 people with half of the service users being female. health workers provided antenatal and postnatal care, treatments for sexually transmitted infection, urinary tract infections, infertility as well as for common illnesses such as dysentery, gastritis, asthma, and malnutrition. health workers also provided treatments to women with prolapsed uterus, one of the major reproductive health concerns in nepal.WFP role in distributing food aid to drought-affected communities is clearly essential in order to save lives. however, by combining WFP's food aid with UNFPA reproductive health and preventative care services, wehave been able to not only reduce deaths among the poorest in nepal, but greatly improve the quality of their lives, said ragan. that many of the people we were feeding couldn't remember the last time they saw a health professional so this approach makes sense and we hope to do more of it.
