This 8th Country Programme Document of UNFPA for Nepal, approved by the Executive Board of the United Nations Development Programme, the United Nations Population Fund and the United Nations Office for Project Services, will contribute to a transformative agenda to build a foundation for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. The central goal is to reduce maternal mortality and expand reproductive rights and choices. All programme components are designed to support this goal by strengthening the capacities of the health system to target underserved communities with quality services, equipping young people especially adolescent girls with skills and information to make informed choices and prevent harmful practices, enhancing services to survivors of gender-based violence and empowering communities to support social change by challenging discriminatory harmful practices. Robust, disaggregated data will support targeting, planning, and advocacy. The programme will work from upstream policy to service delivery by building institutional capacities in the respective programme areas, and by building an enabling environment for the implementation of laws, policies and strategies and the fulfillment of human rights, with the flexibility to respond in humanitarian situations.
