Nepal is in the middle of a demographic transition. Despite an increase in the contraceptive prevalence rate (48%), the population is growing at a rate of 1.40%. The country has a large population of young people, though life expectancy has increased in the past years. The country continues to be afflicted by communicable diseases and upward trends of lifestyle-related noncommunicable diseases. Although there were no major outbreaks of diarrheal cases and only sporadic cases reported, the incidence of diarrhoeal diseases and acute respiratory tract infections continue to be high. Increasing incidence of diabetes, hypertension, CVD and cancer have been observed. WHO assisted in conducting the risk factor survey using eSTEPS.
