UNFPA Nepal

Active in Nepal since 1971, UNFPA has supported the health-sector programme, enhanced the national response to gender-based violence, and implemented the population and housing census. Today, programmes support the subnational capacity for planning and managing population, gender and reproductive health programmes, and strategies in districts that have made slow progress in achieving the goals of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD).
