The Executive Director, of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) Dr. Natalia Kanem, appreciated Nepal for its representation in the area of safe motherhood, reproductive health, family planning, and women empowerment.
She said that they have a lot to learn from Nepal concerning what it has accomplished in enhancing the lives of people in a comparatively short period, despite overwhelming challenges, and the very strong commitment to stimulate the progress on all fronts including in protecting the reproductive rights of women and girls. Dr. Natalia Kanem is present here in the capital on a two-day first official visit to Nepal.
Conversing at a press meet at Pulchowk-based UNFPA Office, Dr. Kanem declared additional support on behalf of the UNFPA in Nepal’s efforts for safe motherhood and reproductive health, and also for the improvement of family planning and in the elimination of violence upon women in the days ahead.
Nepal has been receiving continuous financial and technical support from the UNFPA since 1971 particularly in the areas of safe motherhood, sexual and reproductive health, family planning and empowerment of women and girls.
Dr. Kanem stated that this year was really special for UNFPA as it is celebrating its 50th anniversary and was surprised by the result of the organization in enhancing the lives and well-being of individuals and couples around the world across the last five decades.
She said “It was my honor to meet with senior government officials including the Prime Minister, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Health, as well as the key stakeholders and partners during this trip,” revealing her belief that Nepal could and would play an effective role at the Nairobi Summit.
