Family planning in remote Nepal

  • Published on: 01/06/2018
  • In remote districts of Nepal like Rukum, women have little say in family planning. With the help of UNFPA, the UN agency for reproductive health and rights, in coordination with the Ministry of Health and Population and local partners, one woman is making choices about her future and family.

    According to the NDHS 2016, 24 percent married women of reproductive age have the unmet need for family planning services. This is even higher among married young women aged between 15-19 years (32 percent).
