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. Over the years, Nepal has achieved a remarkable improvement in the reproductive health including FP services. However, despite this improvement, Contraceptive Prevalent Rate (CPR) in the country has been stagnant for decades and the Total Fertility Rate (TFR) are higher among certain groups of population.
One of the outputs of the NFPP project on “Addressing Unmet Need for Family Planning among Excluded and Vulnerable Women in Nepal” is increased demand for quality family planning and safe abortion services amongst poor and hard-to-reach women, men and adolescents in the country. Therefore, in order to achieve this, the project plans to conduct a formative research to better understand the needs of the hard to reach population and identify various contextual factors influencing the use of FP services in the 9 districts where Long Acting Reversible Contraceptives (LARC) services have been implemented by MSI/SPN.
