UNICEF provided lead support to the National Plan Commission (NPC), six Ministries of the Government of Nepal, and development partners to finalize the Multi-Sector Nutrition and Food Security Action Plan 2013–2017. The Plan, the first-ever initiative of its kind in the country, was launched by the Prime Minister of Nepal, a member of the Scale Up Nutrition (SUN) Lead Group, in September 2012. Based on UNICEF-supported pilots on Infant and Young Child Feeding/Multiple micro-nutrient powders and Integrated Management of Acute Malnutrition, the Ministry of Health and Population (MoHP) has decided to take both initiatives to national scale by 2017.
Five District Investment Cases using bottleneck analysis to strengthen health systems were completed. The MoHP endorsed the approach as an effective tool for evidence-based planning and budgeting. Working alongside local health authorities in 11 low-performing districts, UNICEF’s support has led to increased access to 24-hour/7-days per week (24x7) birthing centres from 37 per cent to 42 per cent, with some of the most disadvantaged populations benefitting the most.
Working with the Ministry of Education, UNICEF continued to help strengthen the focus on reaching the hardest-to-reach children. Using the Child-Friendly School approach, over 1,300 schools in 30 districts have reduced Grade 1 repetition and drop-out rates. Over 8,000 out-of-school children (68 per cent girls) across nine districts benefitted from non-formal education. In 864 communities in districts severely affected by political instability, the Schools as Zones of Peace (SZOP) initiative kept schools open, benefitting over 300,000 children.
As Chair of the Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) Development Partners Group, UNICEF continues to make significant contributions to the WASH sector to harmonize the programmes and approaches of multiple partners. In 2012, access to improved drinking water sources increased by 5 per cent and sanitation coverage increased by 8 per cent in UNICEF-supported districts, while Tanahu became the third district to be declared Open-Defecation Free. The sanitation social movement is gaining increased ownership by the
Government and political parties at all levels; for example, an investment of US$1 million was made by local authorities during 2012 leading to acceleration of the sanitation movement.
