BNMT aims to assist the people of Nepal to improve their health through the realisation of their health rights

It does this by working with the Ministry of Health, international and local non-governmental organisations, local committees and communities to:

Strengthen the capacity of local institutions to respond to the community and globally identified health needs of marginalised groups - the poor, women and children - with effective preventative and curative health care services
Empower communities - to advocate and obtain improved and equitable access to essential health services and resources
Validate models and approaches that provide affordable and accessible quality health care services for marginalised groups that can be replicated and adapted by others
Develop mechanisms that will ensure sustainability of outcomes of successful programmes to local institutions and organisations
