FPAN NEWSLETTER. 1998 Mar-Apr; 18(2):1-2.Nepal's Minister of Health at the 21st Central Council Meeting of the Family Planning Association of Nepal (FPAN) noted that Nepal was experiencing major migration problems due to its open borders between China and India. Migration problems have been exacerbated by both refugees from Bhutan and the forced return migration of Nepalese-origin Indians from some Indian states. Internal migration from the hills to the teral region is also aggravating population-related problems in the country. FPAN needs to educate and provide family planning services to the rural poor population which is in need of services, yet can neither support nor educate itself. With family planning already effectively practiced among the educated and affluent, focus should be upon reaching the rural poor with the family planning program. The FPAN president urged the government of Nepal to integrate population into development programs and stressed that program success and sustainability depend upon the level of community involvement. The council meeting was held to review progress made in 1997, and to decide upon policies, programs, and directives for the future.
New York, New York, United Nations Population Fund [UNFPA], 1994. 56 p.This is the sixth edition of a report on global population assistance first published by the UN Population Fund (UNFPA) in 1988. It provides information on the levels, trends, and nature of international population assistance for the period 1983-92, focusing upon the flow of funds in the form of grants or loans from developed countries to developing countries. In 1992, primary funds for international population assistance reached $926 million, $1033 million including World Bank loans. In 1983 dollars, however, total primary funds in 1992, not including those of the World Bank, were $657 million. Primary funds from 17 developed countries in 1992 totalled $766 million of which 50% came from the US and Japan, and 80% from the US, Japan, Germany, Sweden, Norway, and the UK. As a percentage of official development assistance, population assistance from each donor country was 1.37% on average in 1992. Final expenditures in 1992 were $211 million in Asia and the Pacific, $172 million in Africa, $97 million in Latin America and the Caribbean, $42 million in the Middle East and North America, and $6 million in Europe. In 1992, 69% of the final expenditures for population assistance were for family planning programs. Most data in the report were obtained through a questionnaire mailed in June 1993 to 392 countries and organizations involved in population activities. Survey respondents included donor countries, multilateral organizations and agencies, major private foundations, and other nongovernmental organizations (NGO). Responses were obtained from all donor countries and multilateral organizations and agencies, although only 113 of the 366 NGOs contacted responded. Survey data were supplemented by other sources, such as annual reports, UN specialized agencies' records, published secondary sources, and telephone interviews. The report notes the practical difficulty of defining population programs and of apportioning the population component of integrated projects.
