Family Planning in Nepal

For people across Nepal, access to contraception and family planning services can mean the difference between life and death. Yet in this largely patriarchal culture, where having four or five children has long been the norm, contraception remains an alien idea to many, and access to it is strictly controlled by male heads of households.

IPPF Family Planning Association of Nepal is working with local community to increase awareness and access to family planning among rural communities and people affected by the 2015 earthquake.
