The Government of Nepal is committed to providing basic health services for all its citizens through the primary health care approach. At present, this is done to the extent possible through 816 health posts, distributed at grass-roots level throughout the country. The goal is for the country to have at least 75 district hospitals, 205 primary health centres, 611 health posts and 3104 sub-posts. this will ensure that each of the country's 3995 village development committees has direct access to a health institution at one level or another. The health care system is financed from general government revenues, of which it receives about 4%, as well as contributions from voluntary agencies, and user fees. The running costs of the district hospitals and health centres, posts and sub-posts are borne entirely by the government. The annual quota of essential drugs supplied by the government to any of the health institutions is barely enough for four or five months, after which health posts often simply close until the next year's supply arrives.
