Thematic Area


Project Background

UNFPA Nepal is currently implementing the UK Government Department for International Development (DFID)-funded UNFPA Nepal Family Planning Project (UNFPP), with the time frame December 2016 to December 2020. The project contributes to DFID’s Nepal Family Planning Project “Addressing Unmet Need for Family Planning among Excluded and Vulnerable Women”. To further expand SRH and FP services among the adolescent, UNFPA with additional funding support from DFID will be implementing the “FP services among adolescents” intervention from August 2018 to December 2020 as an additional component. This added component will play a vital role in reaching adolescent groups through interventions based on UNFPA’s longstanding expertise as well as global evidence and practice for improving the access, acceptability and quality of SRH services among adolescents.
