Following the success of the 2018 SheDecides Day Flagship event in Pretoria, South Africa – which focused global attention, and played a key role in popularising the SheDecides agenda in East and Southern Africa, sparking local movements and action – SheDecides Champions ARROW and IPPF, have decided to work with the SheDecides support unit to organise a flagship event on 1 March 2019 in Kathmandu, in cooperation with ARROW's partner Beyond Beijing Committee and in coordination with the Ministry of Health and Poulation and UNFPA.

Nepal was chosen in recognition of the important work the government and civil society are doing to enable women to decide about their health and their own bodies. This meeting is likely to spark local movements in Nepal and the region.
