“I Decide” Campaign
This year 2017, I decide aims to address Goal 2 and 7 of our vision 2020 agenda: increasing access to SRHR to address inequality and reducing unmet need for family planning services. I DECIDE is a global campaign towards Vision 2020 Global Day of Action. So, to mark the Global Day of Action and realizing the importance for all to decide for their future, FPAN has successfully organized “I decide” campaign by conducting interaction program focusing on universal and equitable access to Family Planning and importance of Comprehensive Sexuality Education on 5th May 2017. Altogether 31 participants were presence in the program such as stakeholders, students, teachers and FPAN’s youth members. After the program, participants took photo by holding the photo frame with the message of “I decide” my Partners, my bodily rights, my family size and my future.
Similarly to galvanize support for Goal 2 and 7 FPAN also conducted SMS Poll collection amongst parliamentarian, key stakeholder, Donors and policy makers asking them to prioritize Family Planning Budget to address unmet need of FP services and to reduce child and maternal mortality which is still high in Nepal. In order to ensure more investment in Family Planning program this is the key time for Nepal to pressurize government and decision makers as local election is taking place from May to June as well as National Budget is also at the end of the May.
