BNMT Research Overview

BNMT has a growing portfolio of multidisciplinary research, embedded within our implementation programmes.  We aim to generate evidence to inform policy and drive innovation in fields including infectious diseases, mental and adolescent health and health system strengthening in Nepal.

We address issues affecting the health, development and resilience of our communities in Nepal, while ensuring our work is globally relevant by working with a network of leading experts and global collaborators.

Our current research fields include pathogen genetics, health economics, evidence synthesis, implementation research and policy translation. We partner with universities to support Nepali early career researchers in public health, infectious diseases, and global health related BSc, MSc and PhD studies. We continue to publish our work in international, peer reviewed journals and to present at domestic and international scientific conferences to ensure our findings reach a wide audience and inform the global evidence base.
