Infant mortality has been declining over the past five decades from 197 per 1,000 live births in 1960 to 38.6 per 1,000 live births in 2009. Similarly, maternal mortality has decreased to 380 per 100,000 live births in 2008. Life expectancy has been steadily increasing to 67 years in 2009 up from about 38 years in 1960.
These rates of progress are better than those witnessed by neighboring countries. For instance, in 1960, Nepal’s infant mortality rate (IMR) was the highest amongst its regional comparators. By 2009, Nepal’s IMR had become lower than that of India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Bhutan.
