People readily pay for quality services in Nepal.
A monitoring mission found that the UNFPA-supported Sustainable Community-based Family Planning/Maternal and Child Health (FP/MCH) Project with Special Focus on Women has been expanded in Nepal to meet grassroots demands and is being fully supported by the community people. The project, which is being implemented by the Family Planning Association of Nepal (FPAN), provides health services on a fee-charged basis. Community people are charged 75% of the total cost of services and medicines as a means to promote sustainability. The project has been integrated into FPAN's strategic plan of promoting community participation, women's involvement, accessibility, sustainability, and quality care. Under the project, mobile teams of health professionals visit villages twice monthly to provide FP/MCH and health care services. Mother's clubs with family planning (FP) acceptors have been established in all wards of the project village. Acceptors are targeted to receive FP training to become reliable sources of information on FP for other women in the village.
