Situation of Children and Women in Nepal 2006

This report is an updated summary version of the report “Situation of Children and Women in Nepal” published by UNICEF in 2006. This summary report gives us up to date analysis (problems and causes) for children and women in Nepal across all sectors of relevance for UNICEF. Several of the important development achievements in Nepal in recent years affect the lives of children and women more than anyone else: the 40 percent reduction in under five mortality from 1991-2001, the increase in primary school enrollment by 30 per cent from 1995 to 2005—girls’ enrollment increasing by 50 per cent in the same period—and access to water in rural areas increasing by 65 per cent from 1991-2001. The ongoing conflict threatens to reverse or halt progress in these and other areas that are fundamental to the well-being of children and women in Nepal. The conflict also has a more direct impact on the lives of children and women in Nepal. Family
structures are shaken when households are increasingly headed by women due to increased migration, when the whole or parts of the family become displaced, and when children move alone or with a family member to urban areas or India seeking security, work and education. Serious human rights violations include detention of children, children killed or injured, and and recruited as child soldiers.
