This case study describes issues of sexual and reproductive health and rights from the perspectives of young people and provides an analysis of the context in which the Family Planning Association of Nepal (FPAN) is providing youth-friendly services and comprehensive sexuality education. FPAN is an IPPF Member Association and was established in 1959 as a non-profit organisation using information and education to promote family planning. It works in 32 districts across Nepal and has 28 branch offices with associated branch clinics and community clinics. FPAN started its family health education programme in 1981 and its women’s empowerment programme in 1984. It started to work on youth-friendly services in 2002. Soon after, it recognised the need to address the lack of comprehensive sexuality education in Nepal and so, in 2008, with funding from the Danish government, FPAN started a programme of work in Kaski.
