National Health Profile 2018
It is indeed heartening to know that Central Bureau of Health Intelligence (CBHI) is releasing the
edition of its annual publication
National Health Profile 2018 (NHP)
. I am sure the health sector will
be immensely benefitted with this comprehensive information on various areas of health.
Data is indispensable part of governance and such incorporation of updated information from
this publication would certainly help in policy planning and decision making and contribute to the
improvement of the health services in the country. CBHI has put in tremendous efforts to collect and
collate an enormous data from across the country and I am sure that this reliable and updated data
source will become the foundation of decision making across all the health systems.
I take this opportunity to congratulate all stakeholders involved, especially the team of CBHI for
their sincere efforts in compiling such large database. I hope the National Health Profile 2018 with
updated information and analysis will meet the expectations of the readers.
