Call for Abstract: Third National Summit of Health and Population Scientists (10th-12th April, 2017)

Health in Sustainable Development Goals in Nepal: Are We on Track?

The Nepal Health Research Council began to organize an annual summit since 2015 on its special day, the anniversary. The first event was organized on 11-12 April 2015, which appeared to be a grand success with an overwhelming response. 
Main purpose is to give a platform to the health and population researchers in Nepal especially the young and early career scientists to join hands towards strengthening evidence informed decision making in Nepal. We intend to continue this annual event so as to promote the research culture in Nepal, build the local capacity and facilitate the translation of evidences into policies and practice.
