With the huge success of the 1st Global Nepali Health Conference held in 2019, we are excited
to convene again this year in 2020. Though most of the events of the conference will be held virtually, some sessions will be in-person physically.
The theme of the conference is “Mitigating Pandemic with Health, Research, Collaboration and Action”.
The conference will bring together national and international stakeholders who care, work and concern about the health of Nepali people residing in Nepal or around the world. The conference will provide opportunities to network, collaborate and partner among individuals and organizations who help in improving or maintaining the health of Nepali people in each of the country around the world and in Nepal.
The participants will also deliberate on the declaration on Global Nepali Health and participate in policy discussions.
