Health Desk--20 June 2017: The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) on Monday handed over 300,000 vials of Depo-Provera, a birth control injectable, to the Health and Family Welfare Minister Mohammed Nasim.

UNFPA donated the family planning commodities to support the Directorate General Family Planning (DGFP) following a warehouse fire which destroyed a large part of its stock on 9 April, 2017.

The handover ceremony was held during the Dissemination of the National Adolescent Health Strategy celebrated in the city on Monday afternoon.
