The Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) is a global humanitarian agency that seeks to identify and address social distortions and deprivation in developing countries. Through its international network ADRA works in more than 130 countries with people in poverty and distress to create just and positive change through empowering partnerships and responsible action. ADRA has been active in Nepal since 1987 with a successful portfolio of Health Program in 29 out of 75 districts serving to the unreached population in the remotest villages of the remote districts form east to far western region of Nepal.
Therefore, ADRA Nepal with financial support from UNFPA Nepal Country Office is planning to carry out this “Facility Based Assessment for Reproductive Health Commodities and Services” in 15 UNFPA program implementing districts. This aims to strengthen the availability of reproductive health (RH) commodities and provision of quality Family Planning (FP) services by fulfilling gaps in areas such as supply chain management including commodity support, staff capacity building, availability of national guidelines and protocols, service delivery and knowledge management.
