National Family Planning Day

Access to safe, voluntary family planning is a human right. Family planning is central to gender equality and women’s empowerment, and it is a key factor in reducing poverty. Many women in Nepal are not able to use safe and effective family planning methods due to lack of access to information or services and support from their partners or communities. The 6th National Family Planning Day provides an opportunity to promote family planning. Across Nepal a series of awareness-raising events are organized to celebrate the day and highlight the importance of family planning.

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.

Today, millions of people around the world are affected by crises and need humanitarian assistance. Women and girls face especially difficult challenges in these situations. The risk of violence escalates, and their access to health care declines. More than half of all maternal deaths are believed to occur in fragile states and humanitarian settings.
