NPHF successfully conducted dissemination of ‘Stunting Decline in Nepal: A Country Case Study’ on December 21, 2018

  • The Ministry of Health along with other related ministries has put tremendous efforts in reducing stunting prevalence. Evidences have also helped to reveal critical factors behind Nepal’s story of change in nutrition. In light of the belief that Exemplar countries may provide essential case study for discovering the diverse determinants responsible for successful reduction, Nepal was chosen for this study. The project was started from December 01, 2017 in Kathmandu collaboration with Sick Kids Hospital, Canada. On December 21, 2018 Nepal Public Health Foundation conducted a dissemination program of this project. The program was started by the welcome remarks given by Dr. Mahesh Maskey followed by a presentation on the overview of the project by Mr. Raj Kumar Subedi. With few discussion and remarks given by some of the Public Health expert, the program was adjourned.
