Five Key Posters

The Nepal Family Health Program (NFHP-I) was a six-year (2002-2007) bilateral activity of United States Agency for International Development, Nepal (USAID/N) with the Government of Nepal. Its overall goal was to support the Government’s long-term goal of reducing fertility and under-five mortality within the context of the National Health Policy and Second Long-Term Health Plan 1997-2017.

During the six years of the Nepal Family Health Program (NFHP), various Behavior Change Communication (BCC) print materials were designed, developed and disseminated to all health facilities of 17 Core Program Districts (CPDs) with orientation on the proper management and effective use of BCC materials to health facility staffs. Later, upon request of National Health Education Information and Communication Center (NHEICC – a Health Communication Department under Ministry of Health) the effectiveness of the Message-Reinforcing Five Key Posters were further reprinted and again re-distributed to all health facilities of 75 districts throughout the country.

The materials served to increase the visibility of message and was used in IPC counseling efforts. NFHP monitored data base tracked displayed of 5 key posters in all health facilities on NFHP CPDs.
