Women’s health rights being violated: Experts

Kathmandu, June 1:

Nepali women are far behind in exercising their rights to health, experts said today.

At an interaction organised by the Women Rehabilitation Centre and the Centre for Agro-Ecology and Development to mark the International Women’s Health Right Day, speakers opined that the state is not doing enough to ensure women’s right to health.

“The family itself does not care about the problems faced by the women,” said Samita Pradhan, president of CAED.

“We are looking forward to see how the women CA members work to give due priority to women health,” said Dr Renu Raj Bhandari of WOREC.

“The women’s health problems are closely related with our country’s political condition. In the changed context, enough steps should be taken towards improving the condition of women’s health,” said UML leader Dr Banshi Dhar Mishra.
