 3. Women Health Project (WHP)

There has been not expected improvement in the health sector because of prevailing poverty, illiteracy and lack of awareness in the public. Government of Nepal has not been able to establish hospitals and send required number of doctors to all part of district. Somewhere there are hospitals but no doctors, somewhere there are hospital and doctors but no equipment or medicines. Moreover doctors do not want to work in remote areas where there are no modern amenities. In the same way, the salaries and benefits by the government are too little to meet their expectations. They have to look for private clinics where they can work additional hours so that they can earn more money. This is also yields them good amount. Doctors can’t find this kind of environment in remote areas; poor villagers can’t afford to visit private clinics. Because of ignorance and inability to get treatment, villagers trust and depend on traditional healing methods like Dhami jhakri (Faith healers).

Nations having longer life span are considered to have healthy citizens. Enough nutrition, high rate of immunity, availability of treatment, regular exercise ensure healthy citizen with longer life expectancy. In comparison to other district in Nepal, life expectancy of Jumla is very low; population is increasing alarming in the urban VDCs of Jumla. Poor health condition is responsible for the high child and infant mortality rate. Thus, in order to prevent such women health problems and promote their health status, women health program is very essential to conduct by different governmental and nongovernmental organization. In this situation Partnership Aid Center (PACE) Nepal, Jumla has been implementing the program namely “Women Health Project” with the financial support of Population Services International (PSI) in 8VDCs of Jumla district. The program has mainly focused on IUCD. IUCD is a temporary contraceptive device, which prevents pregnancy for a long time till 12 years and helps to maintain the small family size of the people. It is a non-hormonal contraception, which has fewer side effects rather than others. Hence IUCD promotion program has been conducted in Jumla district joint partnership between PSI Nepal and PACE Nepal Jumla.

Objectives of the project

  • To increase contraceptive prevalence rate (CPR)
  • To reduce Maternal Mortality Rate (MMR)
  • To increase awareness on safe abortion.
  • To develop positive environment to assure women’s access to FP/IUCD/Implant service without constraints.
  • To develop positive perception towards FP and IUD among women of reproductive age women (WRA).
