Abstract

Over the last one decade Nepal has significantly reduced child mortality and is on track to achieve two major health related Millennium Development Goals. However, Nepal has failed to distribute the benefits equally across different socio-economic groups and geographical regions. Indicators of progress are critically below national average for Dalit/minority groups, poor, rural setting, mountain area and Far western region.
