Beyond Everest – Women and Children, The Forgotten

Wed, 4 Apr 2018 @ 8:00 pm

Nepal is famed for its cultural richness and mountainous peaks. Yet, behind this grandeur is a dark, troubling industry – one that exploits women and the youngest of the country’s population. They are sold into slave labour and forced into prostitution, inflicting severe mental distress on them, if they do survive.

What can be done to ameliorate their vulnerability? How can survivors of such trauma receive better care in rehabilitation? When will female allied professionals finally be empowered to shape and transform the medical system?

João Marçal-Grilo is the Founding Director of Unity in Health
Gayathri Santhi-McBain is a social justice activist and Trustee for Unity in Health
