Parliamentarians' visit to Nepal
MPs report of Nepal visit
The UK All Party Parliamentary Group on Population, Development and Reproductive Health in collaboration with International Planned Parenthood Federation and Marie Stopes International and their Nepal partners organised a study tour to Nepal on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) and International Development (ID), between 19th and 26th February 2011. The study tour was funded by the European Parliamentary Forum on Population and Development.
The aim of the study tour was to introduce new UK MPs to SRHR and ID and subsequently become active members of the UK APPG on PD&RH.
Invitations were initially sent to targeted MPs in June 2010 following the UK General Election. In Autumn 2010 invitations were disseminated more widely to new MPs. Members expressing an interest were then contacted and briefed on the Nepal study tour.
The final delegation was led by Baroness Tonge, Chair of the UK APPG on PD&RH accompanied by two new Conservative MPs, Heather Wheeler and David Morris.
