Supporting the local level for strengthening the delivery of Basic Health Services in Pokhara Lekhnath Metropolitan City

The Constitution of Nepal states that every citizen shall have the right to seek basic health services (BHS). Urban Health Policy (UHP) 2015 aims to increase access to and utilisation of quality health services with a focus on urban marginalised people. Despite these, delivering quality health services particularly in urban areas through the government health service delivery networks is an issue. Various challenges hinder the implementation process, especially human resource issues which directly affect the quality of health services. Hence, there was a need to develop a locally appropriate capacity enhancement model for health workers in urban health centres through supportive supervision, coaching and mentoring and mechanisms.
