KATHMANDU: Stakeholders have drawn concern over the withered implementation of Safe Motherhood and Reproductive Health Right Act-2075 due to a delay in introducing its regulation.
Speaking at a program in Kathmandu, it was stated that the constitutionally-enshrined obligation of formulating law within three years of its proclamation has not been implemented in the absence of regulation.
The Act was endorsed by both the parliaments (House of Representatives and National Assembly) on 18 September 2018.
On the occasion, Minister of State for Health and Population Nawaraj Raut pledged to take initiative to clear decks in the formulation of regulation.
He claimed that the government has framed several laws required for the implementation of the constitution.
Director for Department of Health Service, Family Welfare Section Dr Bhim Singh Tingkari shared that the regulation was being drafted.
