Nepal: Serious Shortage of Essential Supplies Threatens Millions of children this winter- UNICEF
PDF File Size: 249 KB | Download   
More than three million children under the age of five in Nepal are at risk of death or disease during the harsh winter months due to a severe shortage of fuel, food, medicines and vaccines – warns UNICEF. In the past ten weeks, vital imports of essential commodities have been severely restricted at Nepal’s southern border due to unrest over the country's new constitution. The government’s regional medical stores have already run out of BCG vaccines against tuberculosis. Stocks of other vaccines and antibiotics are critically low.
