USAID introduced its Breakthrough ACTION Nepal Activity to identify and respond to SBCC gaps and opportunities in partnership with Nepal’s Ministry of Health and Population and local government entities.

Nepal has an undercurrent of pervasive, patriarchal social structures and a deep-rooted ethnic caste system woven into the fabric of an otherwise rich, diverse cultural heritage, restricting progress in all major development sectors.
