Welcome to NFCC
In the year 1983, the Government of Nepal, realizing the burden and impact of unhindered childbirths in Nepal on the individual and national economy, set a demographic target of reducing the total fertility rate (TFR) from 6 to 2.5 by the year 2000. To reach this target, an aggressive campaign of advocacy, education and availability of contraceptive choices became imperative. To counterpart the Government's strategy, which was in dire need for outreach and skills, Nepal Fertility Care Center (NFCC) was established in 1988, as a national non-governmental, non-profit organization. NFCC would provide where missing and enhance where lacking, standardized reproductive health services in Nepal.
NFCC has, since its inception worked simultaneously to provide standardized reproductive health services across Nepal as well as support the government by training direct and indirect government and NGO health personnel with skills necessary for effective and efficient service delivery. NFCC works with and within the government infrastructure to enable continuous networking with government bodies at all levels of administration from the center to the VDC level.
Having worked for more than two decades in all the five developmental zones of Nepal, NFCC has made its presence felt across Nepal working on pertinent issues of sexual and reproductive health like family planning, HIV, STIs’, adolescent health, women’s health, men’s health etc.
The technical expertise that NFCC owns plays a crucial role in the work that we do.
In 1996, NFCC developed a benchmark for quality of care in health service delivery, which later came to be the countless Quality of Care (QoC) trainings that NFCC has conducted for the government, donor agencies and other NGOs’. This cemented NFCCs' stand as the premier organization in Nepal for assessment and implementation of Quality of Care in health service delivery.
Our donor agencies have rated us as one of the best managed and professional non-governmental organization that has pioneered, tested and implemented several innovative reproductive health initiatives in Nepal. NFCC, to its credit had an opportunity to collaborate with several International Non-governmental Organizations, UN Organizations and others in the past. USAID, AVSC International (now Engender Health), JSI, FHI, AED, SOMARC, Futures Group, CMS, UNDP Global Fund, UNFPA, UNICEF, GTZ (now GIZ), Venture Strategies, Nepal Safer Motherhood Projects, Population Council and others are the few organizations that NFCC had collaborated with in different projects in the past.
Available, Accessible and Affordable Reproductive Health for all!
Established in 1988, Nepal Fertility Care Centre was set up to complement and supplement the Government’s family planning programs. Keeping in line with global trends and taking the mission of universal reproductive health services for all further, NFCC has worked to ensure sexual and reproductive health for all. The core principles evident in all initiatives of NFCC are:
- To complement and supplement the Government of Nepal's national reproductive health program in Nepal.
- To provide health-related services and trainings to Government of Nepal, NGOs' and INGOs' personnel.
