Nepal has made progress in raising the health status of its citizens. Under-five mortality has been reduced by 73% and infant mortality by 67%. Similarly, maternal mortality has been reduced by 76% between the period of 1996 and 2014. The immunization coverage since 2011 has consistently remained above 90% for DPT 3 and Polio and for measles it has hovered around 88%. The country has achieved polio eradication while leprosy is at the elimination stage and malaria is in pre-elimination phase. Considerable efforts have been made to halt and reverse the trends of tuberculosis and HIV.
Nepal has been gearing towards addressing equity gaps and increasingly focused on making services accessible to the population in need. It has introduced free health care programmes, targeted health package schemes and a safe delivery incentive scheme to minimize the equity gap. However, despite this, the country still faces many health challenges. Out of pocket health expenses is at 49%, there are challenges in delivering quality health services, retaining appropriate skilled human resources, and maintaining regular availability of essential commodities to deliver basic health care. A basic health care package has been defined and an insurance scheme is being initiated as part of a plan to address equity gaps and move towards universal health coverage.
