    The National Planning Commission (NPC) is the apex advisory body of the Government of Nepal for formulating a national vision, periodic plans and policies for development. It is headed by the Right Honorable Prime Minister. The NPC assesses resource needs, identifies sources of funding, and allocates budget for socio-economic development. The National Survey of Family Growth is conducted in five-year cycles. In each cycle, surveys are administered via personal interviews with people at homes. The interviewees generally comprise only the civilian, non-institutionalized population. The cycles so far have been: Cycle 1, started ; Cycle 2, started ; Cycle 3, started

    Access to safe, voluntary family planning is a human right. Family planning is central to gender equality and women’s empowerment, and it is a key factor in reducing poverty. Yet in developing regions, an estimated million women who want to avoid pregnancy are not using safe and effective family planning methods, for reasons ranging from lack of access to information or services to lack. NFPRHA advocates for funding and strategic prioities in a wide range of federal programs which together provide access to affordable, confidential, high-quality public health programs and services. For additional resources & information, access NFPRHA fact sheets and federal comments by issue or read NFPRHA's publications.

    Family Planning Program Evaluation is not a well-developed art, much less an exact science. The evaluation of the performance of such programs has received a good deal of attention but the methodologies are still controversial and the results inconclusive. This is due to a wide variety of constraints, not all of which are technical, and most of which are not unique to family planning. Demonstrable commitment to family planning strengthens the enabling environment in which programs and policies are implemented. Countries such as Indonesia, Mexico, and Turkey have longstanding commitments to family planning, as demonstrated by their use of domestic resources, work toward strengthening systems at subnational levels, and increases in contraceptive prevalence rates .
