Nepal’s most vulnerable face financial, socio-cultural, geographical, and institution­ al barriers to health care access, with nega­ tive effects to their health and well-beinR. This is why the strategy of ADRA Nepal s Health and Nutrition Department is to enable the country’s most vulnerable citizens to secure greater equity in, and access to, good health services. Our key partner, Nepal’s Ministry of Health, has introduced programs such as free health care and the Safe Delivery Incentives Program (SDIP) to reduce inequity in health and improve health outcomes and has, over the past two decades, improved access to health care ser­ vices by expanding public health facilities and strengthening community-based inter­ ventions. However, in the earthquakes of 2015 more than 600 health institutions in the fourteen most impacted districts suf­ fered severe infrastructure damage. This has substantially disrupted health services, and now threatens the improvements in health status achieved over recent years.

Strategic Goal

ADRA Nepal aspires to be one of the government’s most active and consistent partners for ensur­ ing healthy lives and promoting well­ being for at all ages (SDG3), as well as for ending hunger and achieving food and nutrition security (SDG2
