NHSSP: Nepal Health Sector Support Programme - 3
Strengthening Health Systems-Improving Services

NHSSP: Nepal Health Sector Support Programme The Nepal Health Sector Support Programme 3 (NHSSP 3) is funded by UK Aid from the UK government, and is being implemented from April 2017 to December 2020. It is designed to support the goals of the National Health Sector Strategy (NHSS) and is focused on enhancing the capacity of the Ministry of Health and Population (MoH) to build a resilient health system to provide quality health services for all. The capacity enhancement of organisations, systems and people will be achieved through nuanced and responsive approaches that build on a deep understanding of the MoH in Nepal.

The programme is managed by four core partners: Options, HERD International, Miyamoto and Oxford Policy Management with an approach that ensures each partner contributes to the planning and delivery of the programme with a shared focus on achieving results for the UK government and Government of Nepal (GoN) over the next four years. The programme has two components. The first component is General Technical Assistance to increase the capacity of the Ministry of Health and Population to improve health policy-making and planning, procurement and financial management, health services, and the use of evidence for planning and management. The second component aims to increase the Ministry of Health and Population’s capacity to retrofit health infrastructure to withstand future earthquakes

The programme consists of five work streams:
  • Health Policy and Planning (HPP)
  • Procurement and Public Financial Management (PPFM)
  • Service Delivery (SD)
  • Evidence and Accountability (E&A)
  • Health Infrastructure (HI)
