Highly Hazardous Pesticide Poisoning – Gathering Requisite Information for Decision-making (HOPE GRID Nepal)

Highly Hazardous Pesticide Poisoning – Gathering Requisite Information for Decision-making (HOPE GRID Nepal)

The Centre for Pesticide Suicide Prevention (CPDP) works in countries where pesticide self-poisoning is a major health problem. The Centre has received two-years of funding from the US charity assessment organisation GiveWell.

The main goals are to identify the most hazardous pesticides used in agriculture through research and provide support to pesticide regulators to regulate their use. Removing highly hazardous pesticides from agriculture will benefit communities by reducing suicide as well as improving environmental and public health.
