Nepalese Society for Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (NESOG)
NESOG was set up as a professional organisation in 1989. It currently has 271 members, up from 245 members at project inception.
NESOG is well respected in Nepal and is seen as the source of technical expertise in MNH by both government and civil society. It has a formal recently revised constitution, a very active membership and executive committee. It is financed by (life) membership subscriptions and profits from a very small number of projects. It produces a journal and holds CME events including an annual scientific meeting. It relies totally on the goodwill of its members. Its mission statement is ‘working together for improving the health of women, new born and adolescents. There are very clear objectives for the association set out in the constitution.
NESOG developed a long term strategic plan and ratified a code of ethics with support of FIGO-LOGIC. There is a major communication outreach to members through social media, out-of-valley conferences, SMS messaging system and most recent the internet based voting that allows wider participation in the election of the new Executive.
NESOG also developed a NMR approach for Nepal which is currently being piloted.
NESOG is the chosen partner of the Ministry of Health and UNFPA to pilot EmOC gap analysis. This will be piloted in Dhankutha district this year for potential replication in other districts at a later stage.
