The COVID-19 pandemic cannot be curbed if people do not accept the vaccine. The findings of the study showed that a considerable proportion of the respondents did not accept the vaccine due to fear of the side effects and doubt on vaccine efficacy. Hence, there is a need to increase advocacy and awareness of the COVID-19 vaccine to gain people’s trust and increase the vaccine acceptance rate.

POST PROJECT SUSTAINABILITY (PPS) STUDY FOR VISTAR-II PROJECT

Nepal is among the twenty most disaster-prone countries, globally affected by multiple recurrent hazards due to the diverse topography, complex geography, fragile geology, and highly varying climate. Every year the country suffers from significant loss of human lives and property due to natural and human-induced hazards such as floods, landslides, soil erosion, fire, road accidents, and epidemics. To build the resilience of communities and institutions from the impacts of natural disasters in Sudurpashchim and Lumbini Province of Nepal, CARE and Handicap International (HI) jointly implemented the VISTAR II project in Kailali, Dadeldhura, Kanchanpur, and Dang districts with a significant focus on standardizing and institutionalizing Community-Based Disaster Preparedness (CBDP) model that has ensuredthe engagement of multi-level stakeholders, schools, community level preparedness and mitigation, and advocating for inclusive DRM policy. This project was funded by European Civil Protection and Humanitarian aid Operations department (ECHO) and implemented by local partners NRCS, CSSD, FHRD, and NNSWA. This project was for a period of 22 months from March 1, 2015 to December 31, 2016.

Since the onset of the global Coronavirus Pandemic, the Ministry of Women, Children and Senior Citizens (MoWCSC) identified the need to highlight the gender and intersectional impacts of the COVID-19 crisis. A Rapid Gender Analysis (RGA) was conducted to understand the gender differential impact of COVID-19 on vulnerable and excluded groups. The RGA was also conducted to comprehend how existing gender and social inequalities have been exacerbated by the pandemic in the community and in quarantine situations in Nepal.

CARE Nepal’s Comprehensive Adolescent Programme Package

CARE Nepal has identified adolescent girls from poor and marginalized communities as one of the impact populations for its new program strategy (2020-2025). Guided by the CARE International’s global mandate, CARE Nepal has identified this population (adolescent girls) are vulnerable to negative impacts of harmful social norms, child marriage, school dropout, and gender-based violence. These underlying causes perpetuate poor participation of adolescent girls in the public sphere, poor access to basic services such as health and nutrition, education, legal services, denial of fundamental rights and entitlements. It also leads to weakening agencies to exercise their sexual and reproductive health and rights.
