Nepal Health Research Council acts as an autonomous apex body of Nepal government in order to maintain the health facilities of the general public by doing study and research works on the problems appearing in the health sector. Thus its functions are to regulate, facilitate and perform health related research and trainings in the country. The scientific evidences generated through research will be the asset and guidance to the government to promote and provide the reasonable health to the public. The means to promote research would be capacity building of potential researchers and health workers by institutionalizing structured training programs; mobilizing available human resource and recognized faculty for the purpose of research and training; decentralizing research facilitation to cover different geographical areas; encouragement by grants and prizes; and collaborating with research institutes, academia and appropriate agencies.
My expectation is active participation and collaboration from all health-related sectors, and cooperation and guidance from Nepal government whenever required. We work together for the institutional and public interest; and the scientific evidences and trained researchers will be the deliverables. To prepare ourselves with knowledge, skill, technology and usable infrastructure for the research will be the pre-requisites for the successful discharge of assigned role and responsibility.
I look forward to work together for the common interest.
