1. INTRODUCTION
This bibliographic search was prepared by BRIDGE for the Danish Ministry of Foreign
Affairs (DANIDA). The bibliography is intended as background information for a Nepal
Gender Profile focused on the sectors; education; environment and natural resource
management; energy; decentralisation; and legal status.
The databases searched included the British Library of Development Studies; CAB Abstracts;
Academic Index; Sociological Abstracts; Econlit; Geobase; PAIS; IntelEc; UNBIS; and
Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA) materials at the Institute of Development Studies (IDS).
This bibliography was compiled by Zoë Oxaal for BRIDGE at IDS. Sally Baden provided
advice. This bibliographic search aims to be comprehensive of recent literature on the sectors
specified but is not exhaustive. It covers materials which could be identified within the time
frame allowed. The entries are ordered under headings as listed in the table of contents. The
entries vary in both content and format due to the different sources searched. Some abstracts
are provided in cases where they were readily available. The bibliography includes
unpublished literature from women's organisations as well as published sources. For sectors
in which scant literature directly addressing the topic was found, references likely to cover
relevant issues have been included. Section 8 is comprised of other references collected in
the course of the search, but does not attempt to be comprehensive in its coverage.

Women and community forestry in Nepal: expectations and realities.
PERSONAL AUTHOR:

SOURCE:
Society-and-Natural-Resources. 1994. 7(4), pp 367-381.
AB: Community forestry programs in Nepal, based on the erroneous assumption that farming
families are the major cause of deforestation, ignore other critical causes. Recent emphasis on
the inclusion of women in these programs, based on the recognition of women's subsistence
activities and understanding of nature, minimizes fundamental constraints embedded in
Nepalese society. A review of community forestry programs funded by international agencies
and nongovernmental organizations indicates increasing participation of both women and
men at the community level. Exaggerated expectations of the potential of community forestry
in solving Nepal's ecological crisis could undermine the fragile gains of Nepali women. Author

AB: This paper discusses the experiences of the Nepal-Australia Forestry Project from 1978
until 1988. The research, aimed at improving the productivity of the forests, was developed in
response to the expressed needs of the local people, although there were no qualitative nor
quantitative data on forest use. Changes were introduced at the panchayat level by local
initiatives. A series of questions were discussed concerning available land, species to be
planted, forest protection, and other topics that arose during the course of the project.
Examples of this action research are described together with changes in community and
private forest species and management practices that result from the direct participation of
local mountain communities. It is noted, however, that user groups tend to be dominated by
men and by those of higher caste and higher economic status, whereas it is the women and the
poor who depend on the forests for fuelwood and fodder products; changes may be needed to
ensure sustainable utilization of forests and a reasonable equity in the distribution of benefits.

succeeded in involving local people and in meeting their real needs. It examines pat mistakes
and provides a fresh perspective - that of men and women at village-level - on what
sustainable forestry must entail if it is to succeed. Focusing on Sudan, Nepal, and Tanzania,
it addresses the question of how to balance environmental, social and economic
sustainability.

Women, poverty and resources.
PERSONAL AUTHOR:
Wignaraja,-P.
SOURCE:
(Sage, New Delhi), 1990, 241 pp, index.
AB: Over the past decade, both women's movements and national policy-makers in South
Asia and elsewhere have begun to recognise the crucial inter-linkage between gender and
equity in poverty alleviation and sustainable development. The author surveys the work of a
number of grassroots women's organisations in Bangladesh, Nepal, India and Pakistan, as
also related processes in Africa and Latin America. Based on this field experience, he outlines
the alternative approach for alleviating the poverty which afflicts both rural and urban
women. He argues that the solution lies in collective action by women's groups using
primarily local resources and knowledge. In order for these processes to be replicated on a
larger scale, they may require the support of sensitive NGOs, banks, government agencies and
donors. -from Publisher

Language: English
Document Type: Journal article
In response to the need for greater participation by villagers in the community forestry
programme of Nepal, a forestry training initiative has been established by the United
Mission to Nepal (UMN). This article explains the importance of the courses, and
describes their contents and methods. The primary objective of the courses is to
motivate the participants by helping them to analyse their present situation and to see
what possibilities exist to improve it. Courses last from 6 to 10 days and are designed for 2
different groups. There is a course for farmers which emphasizes the management of
privately owned resources, and one for committee members that considers the
management of community resources. There is, however, considerable overlap in the
material. Occasional courses are also provided for basic development workers and
motivation staff. These are designed to assist them in the work of encouraging farmers
and committee members who have attended the training courses. One-week courses are
also available to enable farmers to set up and run a small private nursery close to their home.
It is emphasized that courses will be successful only if they are seen as a part of the activities
of a project or local organization. Participants will need ongoing support to implement any
resulting activities; hence a follow-up visit to the home of each of the trainees is made
later in the year by one of the training staff. Ways of enabling more women to participate are
being considered. 6

Forest destruction is a threat to environmental stability and the
equitable economic development of people in developing countries. This is
particularly true in the Himalayan region, where rural people spend a
large proportion of their time collecting scarce forest resources. The
efforts of the government and forestry officials to increase forest
resources are insufficient and inefficient. However, studies have shown
that in spite of tenure problems and lack of policy support, rural people
in the Himalayan region have planted, protected and managed forest
resources on their own land and community land. Current knowledge about
these local initiatives is insufficient to make appropriate policy
changes. This paper emphasizes the need to study the nature, scope and
policy implications of rural people's initiatives to plant, protect and
sustainably use trees on their own land and on community land in the
Himalayan region, particularly in Nepal. 40 ref.

A review of gender aspects in 8 FINNIDA forestry projects (in Tanzania,
Zanzibar, Kenya, Nepal, SADC countries, Senegal, and Central America) was
undertaken in 1992, and country profiles for 7 countries (Kenya,
Nicaragua, Zambia, Senegal, Nepal, Tanzania and Zanzibar) prepared at the
same time. This paper is one of the results of the review, and supports
the Rapid Gender Analysis (RGA) procedure developed by FINNIDA to give
guidance to personnel during project preparation, design and
implementation, while expanding it to include institution building and
policy level projects in addition to field level projects. After an
introduction, the paper is in 4 parts: The framework; When is gender an
issue?; The project cycle and gender analysis; and The woman question. 55

This paper highlights the gender roles in agroforestry management and
the impact of women on the tree planting programme conducted by the
Pakhribas Agricultural Centre (a multidisciplinary semigovernmental
organization with the main objective of developing agricultural and rural
situations in eastern Nepal). Data were gathered through formal survey,
participatory rural appraisal (PRA), and rapid rural appraisal (RRA).
Results indicated strong interaction among the agroforestry components,
ie, crops, trees, and livestock. It was found that women worked for 12
hours 49 minutes per day, while men worked eight hours five minutes. The
analysis of labour-use patterns for agroforestry activities revealed
significant differences in the involvement of women as compared with that
of men. Preference criteria for tree species were also different by
gender. Overall, women are more involved than men in agroforestry
production and management activities. The tree planting programme
conducted by the Pakhribas Agricultural centre has brought about some
changes including changes in livestock population, livestock management,
availability of bedding material and some fodder, and also the division of
labour. With the household changed from a free-grazing livestock system to
stall feeding, the women find they have more work, as the children who
once took care of the livestock now attend school. 7 ref.

Most development specialists recognize that women play a vital role in
18
forest resource management. However, involving women who are illiterate or
semi-literate and overburdened with farm and household work in forest
management activities is a challenge. In general, rural women lack basic
information about new activities, and what information they receive is
filtered through their fathers, brothers, husbands and sons. Because most
community forestry training is directed towards literate people and
conducted at district level, women are usually deprived of opportunities
for training. This paper reports on how the Nepal-Australia Community
Forestry Project (NACFP) started conveying development messages while
implementing training at the village level. One such training programme
started with the building of smokeless stoves (chulo) out of locally
available materials, as a means of reducing fuel consumption and
associated women's labour. The process of communicating the community
forestry message to women during the stove training programme is
described. The need to identify and act on the needs of women is
emphasized, and a methodology for involving women in community forestry is
outlined. 2 ref.

In traditional cultures throughout the world, the burden of domestic water collection falls
on women. Participatory hygiene education for women can improve domestic sanitation
and increase hygienic use of domestic water, but for fully effective and efficient use of
community water supplies, women need to be involved in water supply management from
at least the design stage of the supply. A case study of the UK/Nepal Eastern Region Water
Supplies Project (ESWSP) demonstrates the value of water consumer involvement in
projects at the earliest possible stage. It is suggested that early participation of all the
consumers in water supply schemes will result in more effective use of available water,
less pilfering of materials, improved construction, more appropriately sited standpipes with
consequent increased utilization and maintenance of pipelines.

A short summary of a report prepared for USAID, Kathmandu, analysing the
major issues relating to women's participation in community forestry in
Nepal. The importance of women in forest utilization activities
(collecting fuelwood, fodder, leaf compost and bedding, and controlling
grazing) and in nurseries and tree planting is emphasized, and the
advantages and benefits of their participation on forestry committees
(both mixed and all-female) and in extension work with women discussed. In
the latter context, the promotion of women into forestry jobs (as rangers,
nursery naikes and forest watchers) is urged as a means of bringing more
women into forestry management.

Consequences of deforestation for women's time allocation, agricultural

The hill areas of Nepal are a prime example of an area in which low
productivity agriculture is surrounded by rapid environmental degradation
as the result of deforestation. The study is based on results from a
survey of 120 households in three hill districts of the Western
Development Region, conducted in 1982/83 jointly with the Agricultural
Projects Services Centre of Nepal and the FAO. Results indicate that when
deforestation, represented by the time required to collect a standard load
of firewood, increased by 1.0% there was a reduction in fuelwood
consumption of 0.3% and an increase in the total time required for its
collection of 0.6%. Assuming a similar response for other essential forest
products, the collection time for fuelwood, leaf fodder, and grass alone
required an additional 1.13 hours per day by women in the high
deforestation sites in the sample. The effects of this on the amount of
labour available for agriculture indicate that women's farm labour would
decrease by 1.4 hours per person per day, a decrease not compensated for
by an increase in wage labour or by men's labour, which may also decrease.
In addition to the effects of deforestation on agricultural production and
incomes, secondary or associated effects could be related to fuel
consumption and time spent on food preparation. The main determinants of
preschool child nutrition are degree of deforestation, household income,
household size, and work loads of women and older children. The results
suggest that it is not enough to rely on out-migration or reforestation
efforts alone to improve the economy and ecology of the region. Strategies
for raising agricultural productivity need to be considered.

Multipurpose tree species in rice-based farming systems in Chitwan,

Document Type: Journal article
Gender analysis has been identified as a useful tool in the diagnostic
phase of farming systems research. The tool was used for identifying the
gender (men and women) roles in terms of labour contribution in household,
farm and animal production, and fuelwood and fodder collection in two
distinct communities (indigenous Tharus and non-indigenous Brahmins and
Chhetries) of Chitwan, Nepal where integrated rice-based farming systems
are practiced. Results showed that women participated equally or sometimes
even more than men in different rice farming and livestock production
activities. Women were exclusively involved in fuelwood and fodder
collection from the nearby forest. Brahmin and Chhetry farmers were
raising large animals such as cattle and buffaloes, whereas the indigenous
Tharu farmers were raising small animals such as goats. Because of such
differences in the preferences of animals, women of the two communities
chose different multipurpose tree species for on-farm testing in the
project. Children's contribution was also noteworthy in both communities.
Results suggest that gender analysis can be an appropriate tool in
identifying gender roles and technology options for rice farming systems
where agriculture, livestock and forestry are integrated and interrelated
components of the systems. 17 ref.

This report analyses gender-specific patterns of forest- and tree-use practices in South
and South East Asia using data gathered from 26 communities in 6 countries (Bangladesh,
Indonesia, Nepal, Philippines, Sri Lanka, and Thailand). The analysis concentrates primarily
on 2 patterns: (1) behaviour of men and women engaged as collectors of forest and tree
products; and (2) utilizing sources of products. Information pertaining to these aspects was
taken from a data set compiled by the Regional Study on Farm- and Village-Forestry
Practices. The wide sources of the data enabled examination of broad regional patterns,
as well as country- and community-specific features. Cross tabulations showed
patterns of distribution of men and women as collectors among the categories of
products, sharing collection tasks for individual products, and utilizing sources.

Nepal is one of the world's poorest countries and has one of the world's
lowest literacy rates (26% in 1985). This paper draws on seven evaluations
conducted under the National Literacy Programme in Nepal between 1986 and
1990. These are: (1) Women's Social Service Coordinating Committee
(1986-87); (2) World Education Project (1989); (3) Ministry of Education
pilot effort (1988-89); (4) Production Credit for Rural Women's Programme,
UNICEF (1989-90); (5) Small Farmer Development Project, UNICEF (1989-90);
(6) Primary Education Project, UNICEF (1989-90); and (7) Save the Children
study (1988). These evaluations, which are reviewed, and from which
inferences are drawn, focus on five adult literacy programmes and two
out-of-school child programmes. Though different institutions managed the
implementation of the programmes all used the same materials and
instruction design and were extensively field tested and revised. They
25
therefore constitute a good source of data with which to examine the
following issues: drop-out rates, female participation, language of
instruction, skill acquisition, skill retention, changes in attitude and
knowledge, effects on the primary schools and costs. This synthesis
questions some commonly held beliefs but also reinforces common sense
ideas. It is clear that good instructional design and materials as well as
training inputs in literacy teachers are good investments. It recommends
systematic research and monitoring to provide sound advice in using
limited resources to meet the goal of universal literacy, whilst building
a system that will provide universal access to quality primary schools.

Women in higher education; progress, constraints and promising initiatives
AU:Subbarao,-K.; Raney,-l.; Dundar,-H.; Haworth,-J.
SO: WOrld Bank Discussion Papers. 1994.244, 81pp
AB: Two issues are examined in this paper. First, how did women fare in the wake of the
general expansion of tertiary enrollments? Second, what programs and policies contributed to
enhancing women's enrollment in the context of World Bank project experience? Part I
shows that despite the potential of women's higher education up to economic growth, a
'gender gap' in enrollments at the tertiary level is pervasive, especially in sub-Saharan Africa,
the Middle East, and South Asia. In Part II, the policies that were explicitly tried to increase
women's access are eamined with reference to the World Bank's project experience from
1972-92. In terms of broad patterns across countries, the reviewed evidence suggests that
countries with low per capita income levels and difficul social setting (e.g. India, Pakistan,
Nepal, Bangladesh and many countries in sub-Saharan Africa), may have the greatest barriers
to female participation. In such situations, a promising approach is the introduction of
multiple components in the projects to overcome an array of social and economic barriers
which inhibit female participation in higher education. By contrast, in low income countries
with less severe social constraints, expansion of places has been generally successful.
However even in these countries, establishing a link between the programs offered and the
opportunities for women in the labour market was found to be critical. -from Authors

AB: Following a series of reviews in the 1980s a new programme for training Community
Health Volunteers was implemented in 1988. In contrast to past efforts, this programme
focuses on the training of rural village women with the aim of addressing maternal and child
health. Given the extended scope of the new programme it is important to examine the
successes and failures of past attempts, so what lessons learnt can be applied to the training
and support of what will amount to the largest work-force in Nepal's health care system. This
chapter describes the way in which CHW programmes in Nepal have developed. It considers
the problems that have been encountered, describes the way in which these have been tackled,
and considers the way in which international health policies and donor priorities have shaped
the development of these programmes. -from Authors

Hinduism, tribalism and the position of women: the problem of Newar identity.
PERSONAL AUTHOR:
Gellner,-D.-N.
SOURCE:
Man. 1991. 26(1), pp 105-125.
AB: A dichotomous Hindu v tribal or caste v tribe model is frequently used to analyze the
relationship between dominant and peripheral groups in South Asia. Using data from the
Newars of Nepal, it is argued that this model reflects indigenous stereotypes, especially
concerning the position of women. Historical data and contemporary practice show that the
oft-cited freedom of Newar women to divorce and remarry without stigma probably only ever
applied to low castes and outlying villages. The mock marriage of Newar girls to a god, while
a ritual adaptation to the norms of Brahmanism, does not prevent a Newar woman from
experiencing widowhood. A trichotomous model, the components of which are briefly
sketched, is proposed that is better able to capture the complexity of current ethnographic fact
and of its possible historical antecedents. -Author

Joint production and consumption in traditional households: fuelwood and
crop residues in two districts in Nepal.

Forest conversion by agricultural households is the leading cause of
deforestation. Little is known about agricultural household use of forest
and tree products. This paper examines household production of and demand
for fuelwood and fuel substitutes in two districts of Nepal. Women play a
larger role in collection in the district dependent on production from
common forest lands while men and agricultural capital are more important
inputs in the district dependant on production from private lands. Demand
elasticities for fuelwood, combustible agricultural residues and improved
stoves are also measured, each by household income group. All price and
income demand elasticities are less than one. Residues are more important
substitutes for low income households and improved stoves are more
important substitutes for high income households. Consumption evidence
shows that both fuelwood and combustible crop residues tend to be inferior
goods. There are favourable implications for Nepal's environment as
household incomes grow, with more households converting from residues to
fuelwood, eventually growing their own fuelwood. Meanwhile,
non-agricultural households will convert to substitute fuels and fuel
technologies. This suggests that forestry development activities will be
most important for Nepal now, in the period before development proceeds
far, and before traditional demands on the forest environment change. 14

Forestry has become an important issue in economic development. It is
primarily women and children who collect fuelwood for domestic consumption
in developing countries. Therefore, forestry activities that increase the
availability of fuelwood and development projects that promote improved
stoves both release women's labour from fuel collection and permit its use
in other productive activities, and improve the agricultural environment
by permitting crop residues to be better used for enriching depleted soil.
This paper assesses this argument, using an analysis of survey data for
traditional households from two districts in the east-central hills of
Nepal, Sindhupalchok and Kavreplanchok. The analysis begins with a utility
maximizing household model which includes various labour and capital
inputs, and allows jointness in the household production and consumption
decisions involving fuelwood, food crops, and combustible residues.
Empirical estimates of the model for each district are used to examine the
following hypotheses: (i) community forests are a crucial source of
fuelwood; (ii) women and children are the crucial collectors of fuelwood;
and (iii) agricultural residues and improved stoves are substitutes for
fuelwood in consumption. 9 ref.

Some factors determining level of use of improved stoves by Brahmin and

Despite the alarming decrease of forest, almost 90% of cooking fuel
energy in the hill regions of Nepal still comes from wood. In the last
several years fuel efficient cooking wood stoves (new stoves) have been
designed and distributed to reduce the pressure on forest resources of
Nepal. Many households who received new stoves have not been using them.
This study examines the effect of individual, socio-cultural and
technological factors on the level of use of new stoves among Brahmin and
Chhetri households in the villages of central Nepal. Factors studied
include perceived relative advantage, perceived cultural compatibility,
and perceived complexity of new stoves, social support for adoption of new
stoves, attitudes towards technology and innovations in general, knowledge
about use and maintenance of improved stoves and demographic
characteristics of new stove recipients and their level of adoption of new
stoves. A total of 100 new stove receivers were interviewed, of whom 48
were not using their new stoves. The determining factors explain 71% of
variance in the level of use of new stoves.

The acute energy crisis facing Pakistan today, calls for an increase in
40
the awareness of the problem among all consumers in the country. This
paper evaluates the awareness about energy conservation among rural
people, in an effort to promote more efficient utilization of energy
resources. The various sources of energy available in Pakistan are first
mentioned with appropriate statistical evidence. The fact that
conservation and national use are basically behavioural considerations has
to be addressed by raising education, motivation and welfare levels within
the rural population. Effective participation in the conservation strategy
is presently limited by inadequate incentives to reduce energy
consumption, the absence of appropriate infrastructural arrangements and
limited access to women, among other factors. The role of non-governmental
organizations (NGOs) in reaching target groups and providing them with
strategies for community development is crucial to the success of the
conservation strategy. In conclusion, a Plan of Action is presented for
implementation at the district level in Pakistan, by means of pilot
projects. 7 ref.

India is beset with three big problems: (1) lack of sanitation facilities; (2) shortage of
fertilizer and irrigation facilities; and (3) shortage of fuel. These are interrelated in several
ways. This paper describes the work of the Sulabh Shauchalaya Sansthan (registered as a
society in 1970) and its crusade against the dry bucket privy and the manual scavenging
and carrying system. The society has passed through four major phases of development,
expansion and diversification: Phase I: Sulabh Shauchalaya for the household; Phase
II: Sulabh public conveniences; Phase III harnessing bioenergy from Sulabh public
conveniences; Phase IV: concerted R & D and training programmes. These are discussed
separately and in detail. Latterly, to make the programme more directly relevant to women,
Sulabh International has started the Women's Welfare Wing, working in six villages in Bihar.

A study was conducted to explore communication patterns of male and
female farmers in the hills of Nepal. Using a roster of names of
respondents, a sociometric survey was employed to collect data on
communication relations and information exposure from 243 females and 179
males. The study showed that males have horizontal communication among
themselves while females are active seekers of information and have both
horizontal as well as heterogeneous communication patterns. These
differential communication patterns are significant for extension
interventions as extension workers would be able to facilitate rapid flow
of information through appropriate members of the networks as local
channels in the community. Extension organizations would also be able to
redesign extension strategies and methods to reach women farmers
effectively while groups could be formed along network membership. This
may require training of extension workers with regard to interpersonal
communication processes and a network approach to diffusion of
innovations. 28 ref.

A study is presented of the causes of failure of farmer groups in Nepal.
Conducted during 1992/93 three categories of groups were identified based
on the problems observed in each group, and were termed: Highly
Problematic Groups (HPG), Partial Problematic Groups (PPG) and Less
Problematic Groups (LPG). The study surveyed 36 groups from the Dhankuta
district, with in-depth interviews with three male, and three female
groups (one from each of the three categories of groups). The results of
the study also included an analysis of gender. Results indicate that
groups with greater than average land holdings show a better effect on
group development. Development of functional groups was also encouraged
when group members come from similar areas, altitudes, socioeconomic
status, and were in close physical proximity. Recommendations are
presented to encourage the development of functional groups. 13 ref.

AB: Minute-by-minute observation of individual women over the period of a year provides a
reliable and valuable description of their daily activities. The extent to which Nepalese rural
women vary their subsistence responsibilities during pregnancy and lactation is examined by
comparing mothers with a non-childbearing sample. The remarkable behavioral similarity
between the two groups of women when workloads are high is explained by reference to
childcare practices and labor constraints prevailing in the community. -Author

Opening the box: intrahousehold food allocation in rural Nepal.
PERSONAL AUTHOR:
Gittelsohn,-J.
SOURCE:
Social-Science-and-Medicine. 1991. 33(10), pp 1141-1154.
AB: The study examined intrahousehold food behaviour in six villages in a rural hill area of
mid-western Nepal. Qualitative and quantitative methodologies taken from both anthropology
and nutritional sciences were used to collect data on food belief systems, household
allocation of food resources, and the effect of these features on diet and anthropometric status
in a sample of 767 individuals in 115 households. Background data were also collected on
socioeconomic status and demographic variables such as education levels, occupation, and
migration patterns. The results document a variety of mechanisms by which some individuals
are favored over others through household food distribution, including serving order, serving
method, refusing to serve foods, channeling foods and substituting low status foods for high
status foods. No differences were observed in mechanisms of food distribution or nutrient
intake between male and female children, but adult women were less likely to meet their
nutrient requirements for energy, beta-carotene, riboflavin, and vitamin C than men of the
same age. -from Author

A study is presented to identify the socioeconomic characteristics and
the decision making patterns of female-headed households, with data from
212 female-headed households in Ranibas, Mamling and Barbote Village
Development Committees, Nepal. Ten per cent of the total households in the
eastern hills were headed by a woman, and 95% of these had occurred
through the death of the husband, or the divorce or partition of the
family due to conflict. Illiteracy, a lack of resources (including a lack
of food security), small family size with inactive labour force and a
complete dependency on farming were the main characteristics. Decision
making was influenced more by the presence or absence of active family
members below the household head rather than the lack of a male household
head. 9 ref.

ABSTRACT: A study was conducted to investigate whether multiple levels of
context might simultaneously direct individual-level strategies by
examining the relationship between women's natal kin ties and their demand
for children, an area in which context is thought to be important. A
combination of ethnographic and survey data from two Nepali communities of
the Tamang ethnic group, the Timling and Sangila, was used to measure
contextual characteristics, women's ties to their natal families, and
couples' fertility preferences and behavior. Findings indicated that
particularly supportive relationships with natal kin have more influence on
fertility preferences and behavior than does contact with natal kin,
although both factors are important. In addition, even within the same
cultural context, radically different community environments can produce
opposite consequences of ties to natal kin.

ABSTRACT: Iron-deficiency anaemia is a major cause of maternal mortality
worldwide, contributing to perhaps one in five maternal deaths. According
to the World Health Organization (WHO), maternal anaemia is most severe in
southern Asia. Drug retail shops frequently serve as the public's first
point of contact for medical care, even though many drug sellers have no
training in the treatment of illness. In western Nepal, drug retailer
treatment of anaemia in pregnancy was investigated using interviews, focus
groups and simulated clients ('surrogates ). Research assistants posing as
the husbands of anaemic pregnant women asked retailers for advice. In 112
retail shops studied, 71 of the study surrogates were recommended iron
supplements for purchase. Drug recommendations often included vitamins,
minerals and other ingredients not therapeutic for pregnancy-related
anaemia. Retailers were found to take little case history. Fifty-seven
per cent of retailers asked about the duration of the pregnancy; 40 asked
61
no relevant questions. Advice about the drugs sold was infrequent and 59
of the surrogates received no advice of any kind other than a product
recommendation. Knowledge of important referral criteria was also
especially low. Although 66 of the retailers had some sort of formal
training for work with pharmaceuticals, current training levels were not
found to be associated with better knowledge or practice. A focused
training intervention to improve retailer treatment of anaemia in pregnant
women is recommended. Copyright 1996, Pergamon Press Ltd.
