Exemplars in global health: Reducing under five mortality in Nepal

The University of Global Health Equity is working to explore approaches to better understand the successes of countries in reducing under-5 mortality (U5M). This work is initially designed with two aims:

  • Developing and testing an implementation framework and mixed methods approach to understand the success of these countries and
  • Extracting actionable knowledge focused on implementation strategies and key contextual factors to inform other countries working towards the same goal.

General Objective:

  • 1. To generate actionable and transferable knowledge related to reductions in under-5 mortality in Nepal

Specific Objective:

  • 1. To explore the policies, strategies and interventions related to reducing amenable causes of U5M implemented by Nepal at the national, sub-national and community levels
  • 2. To understand how Nepal prioritized, adapted, implemented, and sustained these interventions
  • 3. To explore the contextual factors at the global, national, ministry, and local levels that acted as facilitators or barriers to reduction in U5M
  • 4. To explore transferable knowledge derived from the first three objectives to be able to share with policy makers and implementers in other countries working to reduce U5M

  • KII interview
  • Transcription of the recorded interview
  • Literature reviews and modification of questionnaires according to interviews
  • Preparation of list of KIIs with communication and transportation arrangements for the interview
