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).

Reproductive health services, including family planning, are crucial for women and girls in humanitarian crises like the Nepal earthquake. This video features voices of a woman from Sindhuli district of Nepal affected by the devastating earthquake on April 25, 2015 to justify the importance of family planning in humanitarian crisis. It is about how disasters prevent the needy women (like Tanka Kumari of Nepal) and girls from accessing to proper reproductive health and family planning services.

Following the earthquake, many women and girls in Nepal were forced to discontinue the use of contraceptives. Such situation has a long-term impact on women’s health.

Because family planning is a significant investment to promote human capital development, combat poverty and harness a demographic dividend, we must energize the momentum around the critical need for family planning commitments to be made, renewed and delivered.

Family planning empowers women to have children by choice, not by chance!
