KATHMANDU: Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ has said the government was committed to ensuring an access of all sources of nutrition including protein by reducing poverty rate.

At a prize distribution to the winners of ‘Right to Protein Run’ half marathon’ organized in Kathmandu on Saturday, Prime Minister Dahal mentioned that general people are still deprived of nutrition sources in Nepal despite the government’s relentless efforts.

People face various health challenges due to malnutrition like underweight and dwarfism, he added.

PM Dahal shared, “According to the statistics, 32 per cent children below five years are too short for their age in 2019. We all are well-known about the fact that we have been facing such challenges for lack of availability of nutrition as per our age. Community living below the poverty line is mostly found facing the problem of dwarfism and malnutrition.”

Stating that the Government of Nepal was aware about nutrition that children are supposed to get in the first 1,000 days of birth affecting the whole health of children, PM Dahal informed about various programs to enhance health of pregnant women and their newborns.

PM Prachanda also thanked poultry industrialists and farmers for helping in making the country become self-reliant on meat and for contributing to the supply of proteins through the production of eggs and meat.

Saying the government was aware about problems of animal diseases including bird flu, price of raw materials and medicines for poultry industries that are becoming self-reliant, he on behalf of the government, pledged to further strengthen and make poultry industries self-reliant.

PM Prachanda thanked the organizers for successful conclusion of the half-marathon organized by the Nepal Veterinary Association, a solely scientific and professional organization of Nepalese veterinarians with the aim of establish right to protein.
