"Nothing About Us Without Us, Towards Leaving No One Behind"

COVID-19 and Its impact on Persons with Disabilities and Marginalized Groups in Nepal

Position Paper Prepared by Pratima Gurung and Krishna Gahatraj on behalf of National Indigenous Disabled Women Association Nepal (NIDWAN) Submitted April 14, 2020. Although COVID-19 spreads indiscriminately, certain groups are disproportionately impacted. These include those already marginalized by structural barriers and gender inequalities before the pandemic: among them are elderly/older persons, women (including pregnant women) and girls, indigenous peoples (highly marginalized and excluded), persons living with disabilities, caregivers and migrant and informal sector workers.


NIDWAN works for the groups having multiple and intersecting identities and builds synergy both at the grassroots and global level collectively with various organizations and relevant stakeholders by cross-movement collaboration.
