Smart Couple Nepal Press Release
Despite efforts over many years, and major gains, the Government of Nepal reports that universal access to reproductive health as measured by the contraceptive prevalence rate (CPR) - has slowed in recent years.
To help address this challenge, the National Health Education Information Communication Center (NHEICC) in coordination with Family Health Division (FHD), and with support of the USAID Health Communication Capacity Collaborative (HC3) Nepal project, is launching a ‘Next Generation’ Family Planning Communication Campaign.
This strategic initiative is aimed at repositioning family planning for the new generation and at increasing FP method use among young married couples across the country. The campaign is based on evidence from research and on the guidance of the MOHP NHSP II, draft NHSP III, the National Health Communication Policy of 2012, and the draft National FP Communication Strategy 2015-2020.
