The Country Cooperation Strategy (CCS) provides a countryspecific medium-term strategic vision for the World Health Organization’s cooperation with Member States, and outlines the collaborative agenda between the government and the Organization.

Countries in the South-East Asia Region have made significant progress in health in the recent past. Life expectancy in the Region is now 68.9 years, reflecting a rise by 3.5 years per decade since the year 2000. Six countries, including Nepal, achieved the MDG 4 child mortality target. All 11 countries in the Region have developed multisectoral action plans to address NCDs. Maternal and neonatal tetanus has been declared as eliminated from the Region. More than 1.4 million people now have access to treatment for HIV/AIDS. Measles incidence has dropped by 61% since 2000. Preparedness and response to natural disasters is steadily improving, thus reducing casualties. These are truly impressive achievements.
