Success Factors for Women’s and Children’s Health
PDF File Size: 2.38 MB | Download   
Nepal has made significant progress in improving the health of women and children and is on track in 2013 to achieve Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) 4 (to reduce child mortality) and 5A (to reduce maternal mortality). This review provided an opportunity for the MoHP and other stakeholders in Nepal to synthesize and document how these improvements were made, focusing on policy and programme management best practices.
The primary objective of this document and accompanying review process was to identify factors both within and outside the health sector that have contributed to reductions in maternal and child mortality in Nepal – focusing on how improvements were made, and emphasizing policy and programme management best practices and how these were optimized and tailored to Nepal’s unique context.
Nepal’s health sector has responded positively to a strong national mandate to improve gender equality and social inclusion. In particular, targeted free health care policies, through the removal of user fees for delivery care, and financial incentive programmes
have addressed financial barriers to health care.
