About the Partners in Research Collaboration Abortion in Nepal

The Center for Development and Population Activities (CEDPA) has been working in partnership with non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in Nepal since 1988. The mission of CEDPA is to empower women at all levels of society to be full partners in development. In Nepal, CEDPA is working towards achieving its mission by helping women to acquire the knowledge and skills to make informed decisions and to take appropriate actions to address their educational, social and reproductive health needs. CEDPA works with and on behalf of women and girls, in partnership with a variety of non-governmental organizations (NGOs), which work at national and grassroots levels. CEDPA's support aims to contribute to achieving national goals as outlined in the government policy and planning documents.

It is also registered with the Social Welfare Council (SWC). Since past eight years, CREHPA has been undertaking a series of policy research, consultancy assignments and training in the field of population, reproductive and sexual health and rights, community development, and public health.
