NPMHR call against systematic inequalities and discrimination

UT News Service | Kohima, August 8: The Naga Peoples Movement for Human Rights in it’s press statement has called out against systematic inequalities and discrimination experienced by the indigenous people.

Reacting to the death of late Mrs. Kanpatliu Kahmei (20yrs) of Puichu Village, Noney district, Manipur, who died due to pregnancy complications after she was denied medical attention by different hospitals, the organization said, that the denial of basic human rights have severely limited common people to respond to the global health crisis, leading to increase mortality among non covid patients. It is pertinent for the government to give equal emphasis to non covid patients as well and that their right to access the healthcare should not be curtailed.

The Naga Human rights group called upon the government of Manipur and Nagaland to take urgent corrective measures to address the systematic inequalities and discrimination experienced by the indigenous people in availing public services. It also urged the government concern to look into the crumbling healthcare and communication infrastructures in remote and rural areas of each state.

The organisation further urged the governments to revive all the non-functional healthcare centres and that maternity health be given proper emphasis.
Demanding the government of Manipur to identify all the women who have died due to maternal complications during the Lockdown, NPMHR asked for an enquiry committee constituted by the health department (GoM)  that would include a retired judge and members of civil societies to look into all the cases and not just a particular case.
