The meeting was organized by Non-resident Nepali Association (NRNA)’s Health Committee.

The experts from NRNA and its Health Committee have prepared detail guideline on repatriation of Nepali nationals and have submitted to the Nepal government for review. Controlled, safe and healthy repatriation is the best way for the repatriation according to the experts.

“Nepal government need to work with us for the healthiest and the safest repatriation of Nepali nationals back to the country,” said Dr. Sanjeeb Sapkota, the chair of the NRNA Health Committee.

“As NRNA President Kumar Pant has been saying, NRNA has been working as a guardian of Nepali residing outside Nepal. In this context, it is important for greater government-NRNA collaboration,” Said a participant.

The need and the interest of the repatriation is the highest among Nepali in the Middle East. Fear of not getting accepted in the society and hiding the diagnosis of Corona virus has been the trend among Nepali people, particularly in the middle east. It was expected that the infection rate in the middle-east will be low because most of the people in those country are young. But, in fact, it has exceeded all other regions.

The visitors of families in the United States, United Kingdom and Australia have been stuck outside and are looking for next opportunity to return home. Currently ‘stay safely where you are currently at” could be the best advice given the current circumstance. But sooner rather than later, people need to get to their home.

The participants who provided inputs in the meeting were Dr. Puru Shrestha (USA), Mr. Satya N Chaudhary (USA), Dr. Sunil Sah (USA), Dr. Nitesh Aryal (Qatar), Dr. Alini Pokharel  Subedi (Poland),  Dr. Kiran Raj Pandey, Mr. Suraj Dumre (Kenya), Mr. Atul Koirala (USA), Dr. Chooda Khanal (USA), Mr. Dinesh Adhikari (Canada), Dr. Bodha Subedi (Poland), Dr. Sanjeeb Sapkota (USA), and Dr. Shravan K Mishra, Dr. Bhupendra Basnet and Dr. Kiran Raj Pandey from Nepal.
