The brief showcases their exemplary work in one of most inaccessible terrains of Nepal to reach to high impact clients in order to make a significant impact in the lives of men and women in the local communities. Majority of the services they delivered were long acting reversible contraceptives, which contributed to 36% of all FP service provision in the district, and contributed to 1.4 percentage point to the increased 10 percent modern contraceptive prevalence rate in the district during the first year of their operation.
