Nepal : Maternal and Reproductive Health at a Glance
PDF File Size: 1.1 MB | Download   
Nepal is one of three landlocked South Asian countries. In 2012, its population was 27 million and per capita income $1,470. The economy grew despite the 1996-2006 conflict but it did not accelerate post-conflict. Economic growth slowed to 3.6 percent in FY13; a rebound to 4.5 percent is expected in 2014. The economy is centered on subsistence agriculture. Remittances provide significant household income—more than 25 percent of GDP.
Nepal eliminated gender disparities in primary and secondary education. Women hold one in three national parliamentary seats. Wage employment by women in the non-agricultural sector more than doubled from under 19.9 percent in 2009 to 44.8 percent in 2011. However, the gender gap, especially in adult literacy, needs improvement: 71 percent for males and 46.7 percent for females above age 15. Nepal ranks 102 of 148 countries in the Gender Inequality Index (2012).
