Why this website?

Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) is an important and hidden problem in rural Nepal. POP is a heavy physical burden for affected women. Besides this, POP can lead to isolation, abandonment, low self-esteem, abuse, lack of economic support and domestic violence. A lot is known about POP in western world and treatment is available everywhere. About POP in Nepal much less is known and treatment is hardly available.

Women for Women Foundation (WfWF) is convinced that more knowledge and better understanding of the consequences of POP in Nepali women is a prerequisite for implementing successful programs for POPcare in rural Nepal.
