Nepal has thus committed itself to making rapid progress towards gender equality. The Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), signed by Nepal in 1991, commits Nepal to constitutional and legal equality in all fields, while the Bejing Platform for Action commits it to promoting women's empowerment and formal and informal equality in all fields-economic, social,and political. The International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) and ICPD +10 commit Nepal to ensuring women's universal access to reproductive health as well as equal access to all other health services. Similarly, Education for All (EFA) and the Millenium Development Goals (MDGs) commit Nepal to achieving minimum educational, health,and poverty reduction targets and making sure that women and girls shares benefits equally as these goals are achieved. #ReproductiveHealth #Girls #MDGs #SDGs
