                        - Strengthening the capacity for research

Executive Chair of NPHF Dr Mahesh Maskey said the MoU would provide a great opportunity for the NPHF to improve Nepal’s health sector through collaboration. Dr Sri Krishna Giri, chief of the Policy, Planning and International Cooperation Division of the Government of Nepal, said the agreement would help Nepal generate the evidence necessary to influence policy for a country which is transitioning from a unitary system to a federal one, not to mention helping save lives.
