The pandemic isn’t over until it’s over for everyone
While the peak of the outbreak seems to have passed, Nepal’s healthcare system remains under extreme pressure, with many hospitals in capitals at full capacity and daily reports of oxygen shortages.
Throughout the South Asia region, only 2.6 per cent of the total population has been fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Due to the dramatic rise in cases, vaccines are prevented from being delivered across closed borders.
In many countries, personal protective equipment is still in short supply, and some health workers in are yet to receive a single vaccine dose.
UNICEF’s longstanding expertise in the delivery of emergency supplies and vaccines makes us uniquely positioned to provide life-saving support – from big cities to the most remote, hardest to reach parts of the world.
We’re helping to protect frontline workers, so they can continue to provide essential care for children and families. You can help UNICEF deliver essential supplies, like life-saving oxygen, protective wear, sanitation kits and vaccines.
