This report presents findings of a study exploring the influence of law on young people’s access to sexual
and reproductive health in Nepal. Whilst there is a wealth of global research on the social, cultural and
economic dimensions of sexual and reproductive health, much less is known about the influence of
law on access to rights and services. This is despite the fact that every state around the world, without
exception, has developed legislation that is in some manner designed to regulate, enable, restrict and
control sexual and reproductive health, for different groups of people, and in different situations and
circumstances.
