In Nepal many people who are infected with COVID-19 are unable to self-isolate, often due to the need to share small rooms, and this issue is worse for those with a disability.
Working with the local health authorities and local partners we have established a 110 bed disability-friendly isolation facility for those infected but not critically ill, in order to break the chain of infection while the country prepares.
