Nepal Conflict Blocks Life-saving Health Services to Women. UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, called today on all parties to the conflict in Nepal to facilitate development and humanitarian assistance, and respect human rights. “It is vital that supplies reach women and children as soon as possible and that access to health services is not blocked,” said UNFPA Executive Director Thoraya Ahmed Obaid. “The health and safety of people must be assured. This is especially important for pregnant women so they can deliver their babies in conditions that are safe and healthy.” Credible reports have emerged in recent weeks that a large number of women died in childbirth because they were unable to reach medical help. According to several sources, the number of women dying from pregnancy related complications far exceeds total number of people killed in conflict. Already women in Nepal face a 1 in 24 risk of dying during pregnancy and childbirth, and current levels of insecurity, conflict and blockades further heighten this risk. Some 6,000 women die each year from complications of pregnancy and childbirth, and most of these maternal deaths could be prevented.
