National Family Planning Costed Implementation Plan (2015-2020)
Abstract:
Nepal is aspiring to graduate from a ‘Least Developed Country’ to a ‘Developing Country’ by 2022 and is committed to improving the health status of its people through reduction in maternal, neonatal, infant and under-five mortality. In the area of Family Planning (FP), the Government of Nepal aims to enable women and couples to attain the desired family size and have healthy spacing of childbirths by improving access to rights-based FP services and reducing unmet need for contraceptives. The Family Health Division (FHD)/ Ministry of Health and Population (MoHP) revised the national FP program to devise strategies and interventions that will enable the country to increase access to and use of quality FP services by all—and in particular by poor, vulnerable and marginalized populations. Under the leadership of the MoHP a national Costed Implementation Plan (CIP) on family planning was developed in close consultation with all stakeholders. The purpose of the CIP is to articulate national priorities for family planning and to provide guidance at national and district levels on evidence-based programming for family planning so as to achieve the expected results, as well as to identify the resources needed for CIP implementation. In addition, the CIP is intended to serve as a reference document for external development partners including donors and implementing agencies to understand and contribute to the national priorities on family planning outlined in the Plan to ensure coherence and harmonization of efforts in advancing family planning in Nepal. To address the existing challenges and opportunities for scaling up rights-based FP in the country, the CIP focuses on five strategic areas. They are Enabling Environment, Demand Generation, Service Delivery, Capacity Building and Research & Innovation. Through investment in these areas the country aims to increase demand satisfied for modern ontraceptives from 56% (NDHS, 2011) to 62.9% and Contraceptive Prevalence Rate (CPR) for modern methods from 47% in 2014 (MICS) to 50% by 2020.
