Engaging young people in people’s health movement: a success story of Nepal

Date: 
Fri, 02/15/2013

  - Shiva Raj Mishra , Tara Ballav Adhikari 

We are young activist. Neither we are satisfied with the health condition that we are living in, nor with persistent poverty, ignorance that has not been ended in most of the villages of country.  Nepal has weak health care system where profits making private hospital are proliferating and government run hospitals are undergoing shortage of manpower and leakage of resources. The ten years long bloodiest civil unrest has taken thousands of lives and displaced millions of populations from their homeland. Still political deadlock is undergoing and we-Nepalese are not able to see their constitution. The monarchy had  been uprooted, the constitutional assembly was formed through the people’s struggle but again politicians has failed to draft the constitution which vision to ensure right to free health care, decentralization and devolution through federal structures in Nepal. Though the scenario looks pessimistic there are plenty of reasons to be optimistic about Nepal. The peaceful end of civil war, integration of fighters into army is some of the baggiest achievement that we have made so far. The interim constitution of Nepal (2006) has clearly stated that health is the fundamental human right and health care services is free to people in peripheral health centers in Nepal.

Date: 
Mon, 02/13/2012

 

The Aquino government is close to sealing a partnership cooperation agreement (a prerequisite for a free trade agreement or FTA) with the European Union (EU) that, among others, commits to liberalizing trade and investments and loosening rules on intellectual property rights (IPRs). According to IBON, the proposed EU-PH FTA is a practical surrender of national sovereignty as the Aquino government has given up economic protection needed for self-reliance and national development.
