Family planning is a priority health area of the Government of Nepal. By end of 2015, all public sector district hospitals and primary healthcare centers (PHCCs) and 60% of health posts (HP) are required to offer at least five modern methods of contraception. PSI/Nepal’s Women’s Health Project is supporting Ministry of Health and Population (MoHP) to achieve this national goal by strengthening the existing public facilities service delivery system and supporting to increase the use of long-term family planning methods in the public sector. With the purpose of measuring the existing public sector family planning service delivery system, PSI/Nepal conducted a baseline assessment that gauged the availability and functioning of essential infrastructure; number and training status of providers; quality and quantity of essential equipment, supplies and commodities; and status of service provision.
