Provide Family Planning Counseling in Nepal
Help a hospital in one of the most remote regions on Earth provide women with family planning counseling and contraception options.
In Achham, Nepal, family planning guidance and contraceptives are accessible to less than 0.5% of women of childbearing age. Community surveys by Nyaya Health, an organization working to provide comprehensive healthcare for women in the area, showed a strong desire among many women to have family planning options available to them. Family planning services and contraceptives can decrease pregnancy-related complications and death, and help women and their families better provide for their children by spacing births effectively and in accordance with their means.
Nyaya is now working to provide community-wide family planning services to the more than 60,000 women of child-bearing age who use Nyaya's Bayalpata Hospital as their only healthcare provider.
You can help. Just $25 provides family planning and contraceptive services at the Bayalpata Hospital for fifteen women, including the salary for the nurse-midwife and all educational and contraceptive supplies.
Nyaya Health operates a hospital and mobile medical care services in Achham, a large district in Nepal and one of the poorest regions in South Asia. Nyaya provides essential primary care to the region, working in partnership with local government officials as part of an initiative to rebuild the public sector health system. Nyaya constructs healthcare infrastructure, trains local health workers, and provides direct medical services, employing an all-Nepali staff with supervision and training from volunteer public health experts. The group maintains complete transparency in expenditures, operations protocols, and clinical outcomes.
