Strengthening Systems for Better Health
USAID’s Strengthening Systems for Better Health Activity is a 5-year project aimed at improving health outcomes in Nepal, particularly for the most marginalized and disadvantaged groups in the country.

Project works at national, provincial and municipal levels in the target geographic areas of Provinces 6 (Karnali) and 5.
