Abstract:

The USAID-funded Health Policy Project (HPP), in collaboration with the Family Health Division of the Ministry of Health and Population in Nepal, and members of the multi-sectoral technical working group (TWG), completed applications of three models: ImpactNow, DemDiv, and RAPID Women. The integrated modeling package provided evidence to reinvigorate support for family planning among national-level policymakers. 

HPP developed three policy briefs to summarize model results around three key themes: family planning, education and gender equality. HPP also developed two booklets. The first booklet, Planning for Nepal’s Demographic Dividend, makes a case for increased investment in family planning, education and economic policies to promote health and development. The second booklet, Gender Equality and Social Inclusion: Investments for Improved Health and Development, presents results from the RAPID Women model and makes the case for investing in women-centered strategies for improved health outcomes. The materials represent the key messages developed by the TWG and family planning stakeholders that participated in HPP’s message development workshop.
