Abstract
In this paper, an attempt is made to examine the impact of civil war on health,
including reproductive health, in Nepal and Sri Lanka. The prolonged civil war in
Nepal and Sri Lanka marked by destruction of health facilities, erosion of human
resource development, interruption in the delivery of health care services,
collapsing or near collapsing of monitoring & supervision and deterioration of
food security is likely to adversely affect the overall quality of life of people,
particularly health including reproductive health. The following such indicators
will highlight the health/reproductive health outcomes: contraceptive prevalence,
immunisation, safe motherhood, STD/HIV prevalence, fertility, infant, child and
maternal mortality. Both qualitative and quantitative data will be employed to
assess the impact of conflict on health, including reproductive health.
