Strengthening mental health services including in Government designated COVID 19 hospitals across the country

Background:

Nepal’s health system fundamentally suffers from constrained healthcare resources including physical infrastructure and skilled human resources. COVID-19 has further unraveled the inadequacy and fragility of the health care delivery system across the country. With the increasing demand for health services seeking among the public, recently, the MoHP endorsed an operational guideline to establish and run out-patient and 10 bedded in-patient units at 13 general hospitals across the country. Therefore, the project aims to conduct an appropriate assessment of the hospitals and strengthen their capacities to scale up the MHPSS services across the country. 

Objectives:

  • To assess the mental health service availability in government designated COVID-19 hospitals in Nepal;
  • To support the government in implementation of the program to establish in-patient mental health service in 13 government hospitals designated by the MoHP; 
  • To develop standard guideline/protocol for the assessment and management of mental health conditions in patients experiencing post COVID-19 conditions;
  • To assist district hospitals (in the catchment hub hospitals) to provide essential mental health care by training, mentoring, outreach and supervision through appropriate use of technology.

Target Population: MHPSS service providers

Implementation area: Madhesh  and Sudurpaschim Province

Time frame: June 2022 to September 2022

Supported by: World Health Organization (WHO)
