MENSTRUATION AND DISABILITY IN NEPAL

June 3, 2021

Nepali society still views disabilities as a punishment of previous life. The National Census 2011 claims 1.94 % of Nepalese live with some kind of disability but human rights activists working on this issue do not agree upon this data because this ratio is very negligible in comparison to developed countries.

Maintaining menstrual health, hygiene and practices for all these women and their families is challenging. It’s an unending uphill struggle for which people require a lot of mental and physical support. Our society needs many more hands to come together and work in this direction with sensitivity and acceptance. We must first empathize with the ones impacted by this issue to even think about a solution.
