Health System in Nepal:Challenges and Strategic Options
PDF File Size: 1.48 MB | Download   
Equitable access to health is an issue in many developing countries in the Region. Nepal is not an exception. In spite of Nepal facing with internal conflict and political disturbances throughout the country, generally health actions are on way forward and a remarkable achievement has taken place in terms of health sector reform. However the system seems to be overstretched with a consistent increase of financial resource inputs.
Emphasizing public health programmes is the preferred paradigm shift; as such programmes are community based and reach all at an affordable cost. Promoting of public health initiatives jointly between institutions and health services will build up an effective workforce, both in numbers and in skill.
The country’s health development is being scaled up through effective strengthening of the health system and its enabling environment. However, it is crucial to maintain the sustained growth of the system.
