Key Findings in September

Concerns related to children are falling as time goes on. This month only nine percent of respondents across 14 districts reported having concerns related to the children in their family in the post-earthquake period. This represents a one percentage point improvement over July 2017 results.  

However, Gurung respondents once again proved to be much more concerned about their children than the national average, at 19 percent, followed by Janajatis at 14 percent. In addition, Gorkha, Ramechhap, and Rasuwa reported much higher levels of concern, at 15, 25 and 36 percent respectively. For those with concerns, the most pressing worries are health care, psycho-social support and insecurity in temporary shelters.
