Taiwan has seen a considerable reduction in pesticide suicide rates over the last three decades. This is most likely to be related to a rapid reduction in the population that is involved in agriculture and exposed to highly hazardous pesticides when Taiwan has experienced rapid industrialisation and rural-to-urban migration over this period.
CPSP is setting up a study in Nepal that aims to identify the most important pesticides for suicide across the country.
It is a collaboration with the Director General, Department of Agriculture, Ministry of Agricultural Development and with the Department of Medicine, Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital, and ten hospitals across Nepal.
CPSP is setting up a study in India that aims to identify the most important pesticides for suicide across the country.
