    Strengthening local health systems by reaching the urban poor in Pokhara, Nepal

    Pokhara, one of the gateways to the Himalayas, is a popular tourist destination in Western Nepal. Like other rapidly urbanising, metropolitan cities in South Asia, Pokhara faces various challenges.

    Identifying the urban poor and increasing their access to basic health services is difficult for policy makers as currently there are no data at the local level. HERD International is working in Pokhara to stimulate multi-sectoral responses to create an urban health system able to improve health and social outcomes for, and with, the urban poor.
