In Nepal, when young people respectfully bow down to greet family elders, they receive blessings of good health and long life. Together with these blessings we give our children, it is crucial that we ensure that important policies and systems are in place to tackle our most critical health threats. Today, World Health Day is a chance to look back at our achievements on this, as well as an opportunity to note the challenges we cannot afford to be complacent about.

Nepal has made remarkable progress across a range of health issues: between 1996 and 2014 child mortality fell from 118 to 38 deaths per 1,000 live births; the maternal mortality rate in 1990 was one of the highest in the world at 850 deaths per 100,000 live births, but this declined to just 258 in 2015. This number continues to fall.

The rate of HIV infection among 15-24 year olds was reduced by 80 percent between 2000 and 2016; and of the 34,212 registered Tuberculosis cases, 92 percent have been successfully treated. This progress has been made possible through the implementation of good health policies and programs.
