WHEN PROGRAM

WHEN (Women's Health and Empowerment Network) is APOPS international initiative to address POP concerns in developing zones. The WHEN-Nepal pilot program is targeting uterine prolapse in Nepal. In order for WHEN to be successful and sustainable long term, prolapse screening and treatment, health education, socio-cultural norms, women's income generation, and water/sanitation must be assessed in communities engaging in the program.
