In the early 1980s the Government of Nepal set a demographic target of reducing the current fertility rate of about six children per woman of childbearing age to 2.5 by the end of the century. To achieve this target, increasing attention has been given to implementing family planning programmes both in the public and private sectors. The key questions are: What level of family planning practice will be required to reach this national target? Through what compositions of contraceptive method use can the fertility target be achieved? What might this effort cost?
