Nutrition Problems of Female Carpet Workers in Kathmandu

  • PREVIEW
  • READ ARTICLE
  • OPEN PDF

ISSN

Carpet factories in Nepal commonly employ women and children from various marginalized ethnic groups
with very low socioeconomic status. Children and women working in carpet factories have numerous health problems, including micronutrient deficiency disorders. HRS conducted a Knowledge, Attitude and Practice (KAP) survey to understand how to combat nutrition problems among women and their children working in carpet factories. The introduction of Early Child Development Centers (ECDC), medical examination and nutrition education for mothers, and Healthy Baby contests has improved awareness of the importance of good nutrition.
Despite the positive achievements to date, the activities of the Nepalese government alone may not be
sufficient to reach these vulnerable people unless they are complemented by the efforts of NGOs and INGOs.
