Health status and occupational risks in informal waste workers in Nepal

Health status and occupational risks in informal waste workers in Nepal

Reports
More than 10 years has passed and much has changed since we thought PHASE Nepal should implement a health care programme for poor people living in different parts of the Kathmandu Valley.

Reflecting back over the situation then, priorities have evolved, time has slipped and actors have changed, but the situation of access to health care for the urban poor remains a challenge. Médecins du Monde (MdM) funding to conduct this research and to start an intervention to build the capacities of the informal waste workers, increase their access to health care and facilitate their recognition has enabled PHASE Nepal to start this work.
