Organization Summary

When PSI/Nepal launched in 2002, it focused on HIV/AIDS prevention, child survival and family planning. Today, PSI/Nepal’s programs include:

  • Contraception.
  • Malaria prevention, control and treatment.
  • HIV/AIDS prevention.
  • Safe water education.

PSI’s efforts to reach children in Nepal are especially salient because children under 5 years old account for nearly a quarter of all deaths. PSI’s efforts are also greatly needed to fill governmental funding gaps – especially in rural areas. One-third of Nepalis live below the national poverty line, yet social security for health care is limited and governmental expenditures for health care are insubstantial. As a result, nearly three-fourths of the country’s healthcare needs are addressed though private sources.
