Male and Female Condoms For Refugees in Nepal
PDF File Size: 84 KB | Download   
As part of a global agreement to address the reproductive health information
and service needs available to refugees around the world, the United Nations Population Fund-UNFPA Nepal handed over some 700,000 male condoms and 5,000 female condoms to the UN Refugee Agency for its refugee programme in Nepal,in a function in Kathmandu today.The UN refugee agency together with UNFPA is aiming at increasing awareness surrounding new methods of family planning and protection against sexually transmitted infections and HIV in refugee settings in Nepal. Refugees are in precarious social and economic situations and need to be better informed about the available options to delay, space, and limit births as well as to protect themselves from sexually transmitted infections, including HIV. The Female Condom represents the only single barrier method preventing both pregnancy and infection that women can initiate, and in some ways control. It gives women more negotiating power in sexual decision-making and,in the long term, can contribute to their empowerment. Ensured access to reproductive health services and commodities added to access to proper information has the potential to reduce poverty and hunger, and avert maternal and childhood deaths in refugee communities. Reproductive health is a right; and like any other rights it applies to refugees. UNFPA and the UN Refugee Agency are committed to improving the reproductive health and rights of the refugees of Nepal.
