Today is fourteenth National FCHV Day, we want to acknowledge their contribution in the health system of Nepal.  

According to Annual Report (015/16) of Department of Health Services, Nepal’s 51,470 female community health volunteers (FCHVs) promote safe motherhood, child health and family planning, and provide other community based health services to promote health and the healthy behaviour of mothers and community people with support from health workers and health facilities. FCHVs contribute significantly to distributing oral contraceptive pills, condoms and oral rehydration solution (ORS) and to counselling and referring mothers to health facilities.
