Ipas Nepal

Ipas Nepal is a non-profit international development organization that works to increase women’s ability to exercise their Sexual and Reproductive Health, especially the Right to Safe Abortion and Contraception. We seek to eliminate Unsafe Abortion and the resulting deaths and injuries and to expand women’s access to Comprehensive Abortion Care, including contraception and related reproductive health information and care. 

Family Planning (FP) is one of the priorities 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. In addition, contraceptive knowledge and use is low while and Age specific Fertility Rate (ASFR) and unmet need for family planning is high among adolescent and youths because of various structural and socio-cultural barriers.

Research suggests that youths are most effectively reached with messaging on sensitive issues like family planning among others when it comes from their peers. To capitalise on that approach, Ipas Nepal intends to orient and mobilise students in grades 11 to 12 who are studying in rural areas and provide them with the knowledge and skills to be “Change Agents” and disseminate FP messages in their community. Accordingly, Ipas Nepal invites applications from interested Nepalese candidates for the below mentioned position for its UK’s Department for International Development (DfID) funded Nepal Family Planning Project (NFPP) on “Addressing Unmet Need for Family Planning among Excluded and Vulnerable Women” implemented in partnership with Marie Stopes International (MSI)/Sunaulo Pariwar Nepal for identifying and orienting youths in two of its the project districts namely Kavre and Dailekh. The youth activity will be conducted in 2 project districts: Dailekh and Kavre. Youth related orientation and mobilisation will take place in Dailekh and Kavre in the 5 clusters (in each district) comprising 20 youths in each cluster.
