Nepal Expands Health Services with World Bank Aid

The World Bank is offering USD129.2 million to assist Nepal in improving access of the poor to health care. The money will back the government’s health sector program, which seeks to deploy more health personnel, improve governance and accountability in the health sector, expand physical infrastructure, and set up community feedback mechanisms. The World Bank, the U.K. Department for International Development and AusAID have agreed to mobilize financing to help meet Nepal’s health sector expenditures.
