National Family Planning Day

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in Nepal, reports have indicated that the utilization of sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services, including institutional deliveries and uptake of family planning, are beginning to decline due to restricted mobility. This has impacted both pregnant women’s access to essential services and the ability of service providers to provide services efficiently. It has also disrupted the supply chain for essential SRH commodities.

World Humanitarian Day

World Humanitarian Day is a time to recognize those who face danger and adversity in order to help others. It is also an opportunity to celebrate the spirit that inspires humanitarian work. The theme for this year is “Real Life Heroes”, recognising the work of humanitarian workers on the ground working to help build a better world, which is particularly challenging during the COVID-19 environment.
