Nepal is south east Asian landlocked country. Recently Nepal has gone under changes in its governmental structure. Recently, Nepal has changed to Nepal Federal democratic republic country and has formed 7 Provinces from the existing districts in 2015. Three levels of government i.e., Central , provincial and local government. Recently election for this campaign has ended. During this process, number of programs such as health, education, information programs of the country has gone under different adjustment due to which situation is this initial phase in critical.

In terms of social economy, the Nepal government and local government has gone under adjustment and are working together in an alignment. However, due to lack of a proper directives of working together and lack of human resources and improper coordination, programs in the local level has not been fully implanted and those which are implemented has not been a successful. However the efforts done by the government cannot be unseen.

There are many organization which are government as well as non government which are working in alliance for the development of the country interms of health, education, infrastructure and more. I am a member of a NGO named as Jagriti Child and Youth Concern Nepal(JCYCN) and a masters in public health student. As health is one of the important aspect of social development while child and youth health is a priority for the overall development. Nepal won a prize for meeting the millennium development goal however the mortality and morbidity is unequally distributed within and between the countries. Likewise the noncommunicable diseases are increasing day by day while factors associated like smoking, alcoholism, tobacco use is increasing among the youth. Nepal is one the countries with highest smoking rate among girls. These increase the risk of death and decreas the life style. A multi sectoral approach is one of the best approach for the social development via increasing health status of the people. JCYCN works for the child and youth health, works to make any place child friendly, promotes child and youth in engaging them in the social development
