2015 saw a lot of devastation, loss of lives and hardship. Over the past year, so much work has been done to help the country emerge and recover. We all saw how empowered young people continue to play a key role in the recovery efforts. We also saw how and why the dignity and special needs of women and girls should be prioritized at all times, including when a disaster strikes. It doesn’t stop there. We must continue to protect and uphold the dignity of women and girls every day. This one year report (April 2015-April 2016) — Dignity First — is about what services and support were provided to earthquake-affected people, particularly to address the sexual and reproductive health needs of women and girls as well as prevent and respond to gender-based violence. It’s also about the key lessons we learned from the earthquake. This report is the result of strong leadership from the Government of Nepal, generous support from many development partners and great support and collaboration from many implementing agencies and partners as well as young people. UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, is truly grateful to all of them. UNFPA Nepal looks forward to a continued collaboration with the government, parliamentarians, donors, partner organizations, civil society and young people to support Nepal to stay resilient.

Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) is a significant reproductive morbidity among postmenopausal and women of reproductive age in Nepal. An estimated 600,000 women are suffering from varying degrees of POP (also called uterine prolapse or fallen womb). In the absence of a competency-based training package on POP, health service providers previously did not have standards for performing surgeries and were relying on anecdotal reports, compromising on the quality of care. With the training package, service providers are now expected to have comprehensive knowledge about this condition that affects many adult women today on how to provide quality care.This Facilitators' Guide is developed by the Ministry of Health and Population with technical and financial assistance from UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, and also with Jhpiego's technical support.
