Nepal: Unnecessary burden: Gender discrimination and uterine prolapse in Nepal
Many women in Nepal are carrying a severe burden, with some suffering for years before finding the means to get help. They are living with uterine prolapse, a painful, debilitating condition. All too often, women are expected to marry young, have multiple pregnancies within a short period of time because they have no control over contraception, and have to carry heavy loads while pregnant. As this report shows, the government has failed to address the gender discrimination that underlies the causes of uterine prolapse thus failing to ensure Nepali women can exercise their sexual and reproductive rights.
