On October 14, 2020, Nepal Public Health Foundation successfully completed its 11th Annual General Meeting. This year, due to COVID pandemic and its restrictions, the meeting was hosted through Zoom. The meeting was held within 6 months from the closing of the financial year.
Nepal Public Health Foundation (NPHF) was established with a mission to have concerted public health action, research, and policy dialogue for health development, particularly of the socio-economically marginalized population and with a goal to ensure Civil Society’s pro-active intervention in public health.
Like every year, this year also Nepal Public Health Foundation honored two distinguished figures in the public health sector with lifetime achievement awards. Recognizing their years of dedicated service and contribution in the field of public health we had a privilege to honor Dr. Gouri Shankar Lal Das and Professor Gita Pandey with NPHF LifeTime Achievement Award 2020.
