Nepal context analysis for accountability interventions to support the delivery of commitments to increase family planning by 2020

This country brief is part of a series of briefs produced by Action2020, a consortium led by Christian Aid and implemented by Christian Aid, Plan International UK and the HIV/AIDS Alliance. It follows an in-depth investigation into the context and opportunities for civil society-led accountability on family planning in 10 countries, with a focus on the commitments made by Governments as part of FP2020’s global initiative to meet the need of an additional 120 million new contraceptive users by 2020. Each brief provides a country-specific overview of the context for family planning commitments - the power, politics and potential for accountability interventions related to these commitments – and proposes recommendations for accountability interventions related to these commitments. A general note on Lessons Learned in FP Accountability accompanies this series.

Nepal has made pledges as part of FP2020 to address these barriers, including to execute a Costed Implementation Plan on Family Planning (FP) (2015-2020) within the Nepal Health Sector Program III (2015-2020); to formulate policies and strategies to address barriers to FP access for adolescents, youth, those living in rural areas, migrants and other marginalised groups, and improving the regulatory framework to promote public-private partnerships.
