Nepal - Health of Nepali widows and their children: A human rights perspective
Widows in Nepal represent an especially vulnerable segement of the population, as they are subject to discrimination and isolation from social and cultural activities. We have been collaborating with and Nepali NGO working for rights of Nepali widows. Started as a pilot study funded by the Center for Public Health and Human Rights at Hopkins, formative research has been conducted and we are at the stage of needing students to help with activities related to validation of measures and development of a larger intervention project.
