About Us


Ipas Nepal has been providing 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 together with the expansion of contraception and protection of individuals’ rights to bodily autonomy and reproductive health decisions. Besides, Ipas Nepal has been rigorously working for Gender-Based Violence Prevention and Response with financial support from UNFPA, the Royal Norwegian Embassy, and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation. Recently, Ipas Nepal has also initiated its work on the linkage of climate change, gender, and SRHR from the year 2020 and has started working on building a climate-resilient health system in Nepal.

Ipas Nepal works intensively with the MoHP, the Ministry of Women Children and Senior Citizens, the Department of Health Services (DoHS) and different divisions, centers, and organizations at the Federal level while working closely with the Province and Local Government authorities.


Our Vision

A world where all people have the right and ability to determine their own sexuality and reproductive health.


Our Mission

Ipas builds resilient abortion and contraceptive ecosystems using a comprehensive approach across sectors, institutions, and communities.

Ipas Impact Network

In June 2022, Ipas country leaders from across the organization signed a declaration agreeing to the purpose, framework, and principles of the Ipas Impact Network. Through this declaration they actively and publicly opted into the network, which is a mutually agreed upon relationship defined by our commitment, culture and belief in shared ownership, distributed power, and equity.

In the Ipas Impact Network, country and regional teams (which we are calling “nodes” internally) will be the primary implementing and fundraising parts of the network. This includes the US country node. Service teams will provide technical, financial, communications and other services which will be shared by the country and regional nodes or used by the entire network.

Our Strategic Plan

Ipas Nepal Strategic Plan Narrative – FY 2023-2026

Unsafe abortions put women and girls at great risk every year. Ipas Nepal puts abortion front and center in all we do. This has been our focus for 15 years and will continue to be our passion until the number of unsafe abortions in Nepal is reduced to zero.

Our vision is to help ensure that every woman and girl has the right and the ability to determine her own sexuality and reproductive health. Women are the core of families and communities, and their well-being is central to national health and stability. We are unapologetically focused on the woman or girl who wants contraception or an abortion, and we move every lever within our power to support her. We work to dismantle barriers and to foster the full realization of sexual and reproductive health and rights, which are essential to the achievement of physical, mental, spiritual, political and economic well-being. We oppose coercion in any form.
