Underdeveloped Countries and the Healthcare Pyramid

The secondary, community, and primary care in Nepal; nutrition, sanitation, hygiene, and
healthcare facilities are of poor quality and these are beyond a majority of the Nepalese’s means.
Health care services provision is constrained by insufficient government funding. The excluded
and poor have limited basic healthcare access because of low availability and high costs (Karkee

negligence to reproductive healthcare. Individuals without a citizenship are denied government
welfare benefits’ access and are marginalized.

Nepal does not appreciate the values of the villagers as well as their perceived needs. While
primary health mainly aims at health promotion, a majority of the villagers prefer modern
curative services and disregard novel health knowledge. Local practices are also not considered

Currently, some measures are being taken in narrowing these gaps; nongovernmental and
governmental organizations are implementing communication programs aimed at encouraging
people to participate in healthy behaviors including contraceptive use, family planning, safe
