Universal Health Coverage (UHC) is one of the 13 targets
under the third goal of Sustainable Development Goals
(SDGs).[1] While the progress towards UHC in many Low
and Middle Income Countries (LMICs) has often been
feeble due to inadequate fiscal capacity, lack of governance
structures and political commitment, the Himalayan nation
Nepal is making some progress. The National Health Policy
2014 and National Health Insurance Policy 2013 of Nepal
have UHC as one of the policy strategies. However, Nepal’s
quest for UHC is fraught with many challenges.
