The Government of Nepal established Social Health Security Development Committee (SHSDC) in 2071 BS, a semi-autonomous body, to implement the National Health Insurance. Its key policy vision is to ensure universal access to healthcare, independent of people’s ability to pay. SHSDC is chaired by the Secretary of the Ministry of Health and is composed of representatives from the Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Health, and Department of Health Services, along with other experts.


National Social Health Insurance (NSHI) has being progressively rolled out in districts and is planned to be subsequently expanded nationwide by 2021.
