Nepal: CEPHED calls for COVID-19 to be recognised as an occupational disease

Center for Public Health and Environmental Development (CEPHED) has requested the Nepal government recognise Covid-19 as an occupational disease.

Call for information: Covid-19 compensation and official recognition as an occupational disease by country

CEPHED notes a number of countries have already recognised Covid-19 as an occupational disease and agreed that work-related cases of Covid-19 must be reported to the authorities and now qualify for workers’ compensation. In some examples, cases of Covid-19 in frontline workers are presumed by the compensation authorities to be caused by the job (with ‘frontline workers’ covering a wide-range of job categories).

CEPHED wishes  to make available information on best practice. and is seeking information from  with regard to:

a) compensation (and if possible any conditions/restrictions on eligibility)

b) official recognition of Covid-19 as an occupational disease, and any related reporting/recording requirements.

Thank you for your assistance. It will be extremely helpful in our efforts to secure prevention of Covid-19 and justice for all affected workers.
