posted in: Asia, Nepal, Newsletter | 0

More than a year after announcing that abortion would be available free of cost, the government of Nepal has set aside Rs 32 million for the fiscal year 2016-17 to start the service. Preparation included collecting data on the number of abortion services seekers. “Once it is complete, we will pass it to Ministry of Finance; after that, we will be able to start the service. It might take around two to three more weeks.”
