OUR APPROACH

Since its founding in 1973, Ipas has been working to improve reproductive health around the world. In all these years, Ipas has been expanding access to safe abortion and contraception and protecting individuals’ right to bodily autonomy and reproductive health decisions. In the context of Nepal, Ipas Nepal, a non-governmental organization, has given technical support to the Ministry of Health and Population (MoHP) to initiate and expand Safe Abortion Services (SAS) in the country since the legalization of abortion in 2002.

Perspectives from our participants

“Youth and Adolescents Program for Sex and Reproductive Health Education organized by Ipas Nepal helped me to understand more about safe abortion, proper menstrual health and hygiene, gender-based violence and safe motherhood. Furthermore, I was able to teach and share my learnings among my family, sisters, neighborhood, mother groups, children clubs, adolescent girls’ groups and men group.” – Shrijana Mizar, youth
