21 November 2006 opened a new chapter in Nepal’s history with the signing of the comprehensive peace agreement between the SevenParty Alliance and the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist), bringing the long drawn conflict to an end. For our readers, working on humanitarian and developmental oriented health issues, this brings forth a time to re-think, re-plan and re-launch their programmes. Nepal’s health sector comprises a complex mix of humanitarian and development issues. While the root cause of malnutrition lies in underdevelopment and poverty, natural hazards like floods and droughts as well as conflicts exacerbate the condition leaving many, especially children severely malnourished. Similarly, water and sanitation, primary health care, maternal mortality and outdated denominators are main concerns of both government and international actors within the humanitarian and developmental sphere. Most of these issues need short term humanitarian interventions, as well as long-term development plans. EHA situated within WHO is uniquely poised to intervene in both crisis and post-conflict settings. We hope to use this dual responsibility to address some of the urgent health issues during the post-conflict period and build on their outcome to strengthen health service delivery. Rapid health assessments, monitoring of humanitarian needs, coordination, operational planning and targeted stop-gap procurement are the main tasks for EHA during this transitional post-conflict phase.
