Nepal–WHO Country Cooperation Strategy (CCS) 2018–2022


2 May 2018

The Nepal–WHO Country Cooperation Strategy (2018–2022) was launched on 2 May 2018 jointly by Hon’ble State Minister for Health and Population Ms Padma Aryal, Secretary Ministry of Health and Population Dr Pushpa Chaudhary, WHO Assistant Director-General Dr Ren Minghui and WHO Representative to Nepal Dr Jos Vandelaer in the presence of all key stakeholders.

The Country Cooperation Strategy (CCS) provides a medium-term strategic vision for World Health Organization’s cooperation with a particular Member State in support of that country’s national health polices, strategies and plans. This Country Cooperation Strategy guides World Health Organization’s work in Nepal 2018–2022. This strategy is informed by the aspirations of the National Health Policy (2014), Nepal Health Sector Strategy (2015–2020), international commitments made by the Government of Nepal, Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), WHO’s Regional Flagship Priorities and the Thirteenth General Programme of Work. 

This strategy is the third of its kind and builds on the lessons learnt from past performance. The strategy serves as a roadmap to drive the collaborative work between WHO and the Government of Nepal, and also involve other health sector stakeholders.

Four Strategic Priorities have been identified in the CCS:

  1. Advancing universal health coverage in a federalized governance structure,
  2. Effective delivery of priority public health programmes,
  3. Enhance health security and disaster preparedness and response,
  4. Multisectoral engagement and partnerships for improved health outcomes.
