About Summit

The “Third National Summit of the Health and Population Scientists in Nepal” will be one of the most comprehensive Summits of the year 2017 organized by the Nepal Health Research Council (NHRC), the apex body for health research in Nepal.

We received an overwhelming response from the enthusiastic participants in the Second Summit, which has been a tremendous encouragement for us to host the Third Summit and to continue it as an annual gathering in the years ahead.


Health and population scientists can have a major contribution to uncover SDG related evidences which in turn provides an insight into whether or not Nepal has initiated effort to meet the aspiration of the SDGs. The initial tracking of the capacities and the available evidences become immense in developing and promoting further actions for the achievement of SDGs.


Realizing these needs, it is our pleasure to host the Third Summit with the theme

Health in Sustainable Development Goals in Nepal:

Are We on Track?
