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.

Nepal is a co-signatory to the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) in 1994, and has committed itself to improve the reproductive health status of people throughout the country. The Reproductive Health Strategy of Nepal recognized that reproductive health (RH) is a crucial part of the overall health and is central to human development. Better availability and accessibility to quality RH commodities is critical to meet the ICPD and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This Reproductive Health Commodity Security (RHCS) Strategy aims to ensure a smooth supply and choice of quality contraceptives and other RH commodities to meet every person’s needs at the right time and in the right place. Its objective is to address all elements of RHCS in a holistic manner and streamline the activities to meet ICPD’s goal, the Family Planning 20/20 Commitment and the SDGs for ensuring universal access to sexual and RH rights.
This RHCS Strategy 2015 is the outcome of hard work conducted by a wide range of partners and stakeholders. Implementation of the National RHCS Strategy (2007-2011) did not produce results as envisioned due to a lack of clear, doable and achievable action plans. Therefore, UNFPA Nepal supported Family Health Division and Logistics Health Division to review, revise and update the National RHCS strategy 2007-2011, defining key strategies and priority interventions to ensure the sustainable access to RH commodities, including estimation of financial requirements for implementing the strategy.

युवा शक्ति राष्ट्रको अमूल्य सम्पत्ति हो । युवा राजनीतिक, आर्थिक, सामाजिक र सांस्कृतिक रूपान्तरणका अग्रदूत तथा परिवतर्नका संवाहक शक्ति हुन् । साहस, सिर्जनशीलता, सिक्ने क्षमता एवं उच्च आत्मविश्वासका कारण यो वर्ग राष्ट्रको प्रमुख धरोहरको रूपमा रहेको हुन्छ, जसलाई राष्ट्र निर्माणको प्रमुख स्रोतसमेत मानिन्छ । नेपालमा १६ देखि ४० वर्ष उमेर समूहको जनसङ्ख्या कुल जनसङ्ख्याको ४०.३ प्रतिशत रहेको छ । गुणात्मक र सङ्ख्यात्मक दृष्टिले युवा राष्ट्रको मेरूदण्ड भएकाले युवाको सर्वाङ्गीण विकास गरी उनीहरूको क्षमतालाई राष्ट्रिय विकासको मूलधारमा ल्याउनु जरूरी छ । 
 
युवामा राष्ट्र, राष्ट्रियता र जनताप्रतिको बफादारी; युवाका आधारभूत आवश्यकताहरूको परिपूर्ति; समानता एवं समतामूलक वितरणको सिद्धान्त; संवैधानिक सर्वाेच्चता; वैयक्तिक स्वतन्त्रता; विश्वव्यापी मानवाधिकारको सिद्धान्त; लोकतान्त्रिक मूल्य मान्यता; विश्वशान्ति; सह–अस्तित्व; जाति, भाषा, संस्कृति र वातावरणीय सम्पदाको संरक्षण र संवद्र्धन जस्ता आधारभूत मूल्य मान्यताहरूको प्रवद्र्धन हेतु राष्ट्रिय युवा नीति, २०६६ जारी गरिएको थियो । सोही नीतिले निर्देश गरे बमोजिम पाँच वर्षपछि पुनरावलोकन गरी युवा तथा खेलकुद मन्त्रालयले राष्ट्रिय युवा नीति, २०७२ तर्जुमा गरेको छ ।

नेपालमा युवा विकास तथा परिचालनका लागि २०६५ सालमा नेपाल सरकारले युवा तथा खेलकुद मन्त्रालय स्थापना गरेको थियो । मन्त्रालय गठनसँगै राष्ट्रिय युवा नीति तर्जुमा गरी युवा विकास र परिचालनका विभिन्न कार्यक्रमहरू सञ्चालन हुँदै आएका छन् । नेपाल सरकारको तेह्रौं योजनाको आधारपत्रमा युवामा उद्यमशीलता र क्षमता अभिवृद्धि गर्ने, स्वरोजगार र आय आर्जन कार्यक्रममा सक्रिय बनाउने र राष्ट्रिय विकासको नेतृत्व गर्न सक्ने गरी सशक्तीकरण गर्ने रणनीति तय गरिएको छ । यसैअनुसार युवासँग सम्बन्धित शिक्षा, स्वास्थ्य, कृषि, पर्यटन, श्रम तथा रोजगार, खेलकुद लगायतका क्षेत्रमा नेपाल सरकारका विभिन्न मन्त्रालयहरूले क्षेत्रगत नीति तर्जुमा गरी कार्यक्रमहरु
कार्यान्वयन गर्दै आएका छन्।
 
युवा विकास र परिचालनका लागि मन्त्रालय मातहत रहने गरी राष्ट्रिय युवा परिषद्गठन गरी युवा कार्यक्रम संयोजन गर्न गराउन युवा परिषद् ऐन २०७२ जारी भइसकेको छ । युवा परिषद् ऐन जारी भएपछि राष्ट्रिय युवा परिषद् गठनको वैधानिक बाटो खुलेको छ र परिषद्को स्थापनासँगै युवा विकास र परिचालनका लागि साङ्गठनिक संरचना निर्माण हुनेछ । राष्ट्रिय युवा नीति २०७२ मा युवा विकासका व्यापक विषय वस्तुलाई नीतिगत रूपमा समावेश गरिएको छ । तिनै विषयहरुलाई प्राथमिकता निर्धारण गरेर कार्यान्वयनका लागि युवा विकासको स्पष्ट दृष्टिकोण, रणनीतिक कार्ययोजना र कार्यक्रम तय गर्नु अति आवश्यक छ । नेपाल सरकारका विभिन्न मन्त्रालय तथा निकायहरू, युवा विकाससँग सम्बन्धित संघ-संस्थाहरू र अन्तर्राष्ट्रिय दातृ संस्थालाई युवा विकासको लक्ष्यमा समन्वयात्मक रूपमा परिचालन गरी राष्ट्रिय युवा परिषदमार्फत राष्ट्रिय युवा नीति, २०७२ लाई प्रभावकारी रूपमा कार्यान्वयन गर्न ‘युथ भिजन – २०२५’ सहितको दश बर्षे रणनीतिक योजना युवा तथा खेलकुद मन्त्रालयले ल्याएको हो ।
