Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) is a significant reproductive morbidity among postmenopausal and women of reproductive age in Nepal. An estimated 600,000 women are suffering from varying degrees of POP (also called uterine prolapse or fallen womb). In the absence of a competency-based training package on POP, health service providers previously did not have standards for performing surgeries and were relying on anecdotal reports, compromising on the quality of care. With the training package, service providers are now expected to have comprehensive knowledge about this condition that affects many adult women today on how to provide quality care.
This Facilitators' Guide is developed by the Ministry of Health and Population with technical and financial assistance from UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, and also with Jhpiego's technical support.
