The strong links between Nepal and the UK in Nepal’s health sector date back to the 1950s. The UK government and a number of UK agencies have played a major role in supporting the development of Nepal’s health services. UK-led programmes have helped address Nepal’s need for trained, specialised human resources and in recent years have supported maternal and child health and access to free health care.
The connections are more than this as many UK health professionals have gained invaluable experience working in Nepal on the above programmes and a cadre of UK trained Nepalese doctors are now working in the UK, in Nepal and elsewhere.
