District Based Consultant
Ipas Nepal
Ipas Nepal is a non-profit international development organization that works to increase women’s ability to exercise their Sexual and Reproductive Health, especially the Right to Safe Abortion and Contraception. We seek to eliminate Unsafe Abortion and the resulting deaths and injuries and to expand women’s access to Comprehensive Abortion Care, including contraception and related reproductive health information and care.

Family Planning (FP) is one of the priority programmes of the Ministry of Health and Population (MoHP) with an aim to foster equitable access and utilisation of quality FP services throughout the country. However, due to geographical, social and physical barriers, many women in rural areas are unable to access information and knowledge on SRH and FP. Additionally, cultural beliefs, norms, myths and misconceptions impede women’s ability to use services. To address these issues, this project will connect and link women with FCHVs, who will act as a bridge with the health facility and service providers. Women and girls will get the opportunity to interact with service providers and get services immediately after counselling in their local health facilities.
