PDF File Size: 5.54 MB | Download   
This study to determine the prevalence of selected Reproductive Health (RH) morbidities, namely, Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP), Obstetric Fistula, Cervical Cancer and Human Papillomavirus (HPV-types 16 and 18) among women of reproductive age groups (15-49 years) attending RH camps in Nepal was carried out under the Family Health Division (FHD) of the Government of Nepal (GoN)/Ministry of Health (MoH) with technical and financial support from the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). The study was conducted by the Center for Molecular Dynamics Nepal (CMDN).
RH morbidity is a broad concept that encompasses a wide range of health issues and problems related to reproductive organs and functions. This includes, but is not limited to, childbearing. RH morbidities include obstetric morbidities sustained during pregnancy, delivery and the postpartum period as well as gynecological morbidities related to conditions of ill health not associated with pregnancy such as reproductive tract infections, cervical cell changes, malignancies and subfertility. RH morbidity, in general, is an outcome of not only biological factors but is also associated with socio-economic factors such as poverty, control over material resources, and social disparities such as a lack of women’s ability to exercise control over decision making regarding her own body. This affects the health and social wellbeing of those women who are in their reproductive and economically productive ages, as well as their offspring.

The specific objectives of the study were to:
• Map the selected RH morbidities by urban or rural residence, developmental regions
and ecological zones.
• Determine disaggregated prevalence data based on age, caste and ethnicity.
• Examine factors associated with RH morbidities.
