Introduction

In 2009, Ministry of Health and Population (MoHP) constituted Primary Health Care Revitalization Division (PRD), a new division, under the Department of Health Services (DoHS). PHCRD division will assume the mantle to revitalize PHC in Nepal by addressing emerging health challenges in close collaboration with the other DoHS divisions and different supporting actors. The division will make inroads into translating the constitutionally stipulated fundamental right of basic free health care into practice by addressing the disparities in health service delivery and promoting equitable health services. The following are the objectives of PHCRD:

  • To provide free basic health service to all citizens as stated in the law.
  • To ensure easy access of health services.
  • To provide quality health services.
  • To provide health services to urban poor, vulnerable and marginalized, and for people with disability.
  • To achieve the Health sector MDGs by making the delivery of free health care services effective.
  • To develop future program and strategies commensurate with regular monitoring and evaluation of free health care services.
  • To implement health insurance.
  • To implement program ensuring citizens right to clean environment.
  • To mobilize community participation for cooperation at local level.

Globally mental health problems are a serious public health concern. Currently four out of five people with severe mental illness in Low and Middle Income Countries (LMIC) receive no effective treatment. There is an urgent need to address this enormous treatment gap.

Nepal’s mental health policy was formulated in 1996. Key components of the policy include:

  1. To ensure the availability and accessibility of minimum mental health services for all the population of Nepal;
  2. To prepare human resources in the area of mental health;
  3. To protect the fundamental human rights of the mentally ill; and
  4. To improve awareness about mental health.
