This study demonstrates that surgical interventions have positive impact on the improvement of the health related quality of life of women who suffer from Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) or Uterine Prolapse. The effort of the government and the stakeholders for providing treatment in this regard has benefited the women of Nepal. However, surgical intervention alone will not be a complete solution in addressing the comprehensive needs. The information obtained from this study will help for future policy and planning interventions against POP programme in Nepal.
