Partners in Country

Endorsement of global compact for progress towards universal health coverage

UHC2030 member

UHC2030 joint vision progress

Nepal joined IHP+ in 2007. It has a National Health Plan (2010-2015). The Ministry of Health and seven development partners signed a Country Compact in 2009. Nepal’s National Health Plan was reviewed using the JANS tool in February 2010. Following this, a joint financing arrangement was signed by GAVI, USAID, World Bank, Ausaid, DFID, KfW, UNICEF, WHO and UNFPA in 2010. It is developing a roadmap for strengthening the monitoring and evaluation system based on an assessment of the current M&E platform. Three national CSOs received Health Action Policy Fund Grants in 2010: Resource Centre for Primary Health Care, Action Aid Nepal and the BP Memorial Health Foundation. In 2012, Action Aid International in Nepal became a HPAF grantee. An IHP+ country grant has primarily been used to support the development of the health partnership forum and to support the Ministry of Health in strengthening monitoring and review mechanisms. A review of health aid effectiveness and results was completed in 2012. Nepal participated in the 2nd and 3rd round of monitoring by IHP+Results. IHP+ membership was transferred to UHC2030 in 2016.
