Coordination & Stakeholder Involvement

The Shanti Foundation partners with many international, national, local organizations and stakeholders.  These include both governmental offices within the districts serving such as Municipalities, the Nepal Health Ministry, District Health Offices, and the Ministry of Women, Children, and Social Welfare and non-governmental organizations.  The Foundation is accountable to operate within established policies and guidelines as determined by the government.  Significant collaboration with the government, INGOs, NGOs, hospitals, police, and schools for programs has helped to coordinate effective programs.  Further partnerships include the National Federation of Women Living with HIV/AIDS (NFWLHA); the National Center for AIDS and STD Control (NCASC); the National NGO Network Group Against AIDS-Nepal (NANGAN); the Family Planning Association of Nepal (FPAN).  The Shanti Foundation will continue to coordinate with national NGOs and international INGOs.
