The Lesotho National Health Strategic Plan (NHSP), 2017 to 2022, is an implementation strategy for the Lesotho National Health Policy (NHP 2016). The development of the National Health Strategic Plan (NHSP) was done alongside the development of the National Health Policy (NHP). Both the NHP and the NHSP were developed to continue from previous versions. The process of developing the two documents, including consultations and feedback, lasted for approximately four months. The process started with a review of the implementation of the previous NHP and NHSP. Situational analyses were conducted using face to face interviews, literature review and the administration of standard questionnaires.
