Thanks for you time
I am a highly motivated and passionate individual dedicated to the field of public health in Nepal. With an academic background of PCL in general medicine, a Bachelor of Public Health (BPH) and a Master's degree in Public Health (MPH), I am committed to making a positive impact on the people's health and the health systems in Nepal.
My primary professional goal is to become an influential public health expert in Nepal, contributing significantly to the improvement of healthcare services. I firmly believe in investing in public health innovations to strengthen the national health system and increase access to quality and affordable healthcare for hard-to-reach and underserved populations in rural areas.
I am deeply interested in areas such as health systems, health policy, and management, as well as implementation research and public health informatics. I recognize the importance of integrating innovative solutions into the Nepalese context to develop evidence-based health policies and practices.
In addition to my academic achievements and professional role, I have established myself as a public health blogger and the founder of Public Health Update. Through this platform, I have been able to share updates, information, and opportunities for public health professionals worldwide. I am also an active social media activist, focusing on addressing public health issues and promoting well-being in Nepal.
I possess extensive experience in planning, managing, and implementing public health interventions across various sectors, including government, NGOs, INGOs, and intergovernmental organizations. Furthermore, I actively engage in professional activities through professional organizations like the Nepal Public Health Association and the Public Health Youth Society of Nepal, working collaboratively to promote health, prevent diseases, and improve well-being in Nepal.
My professional background includes extensive experience in drafting plans and policies, conducting research, engaging stakeholders, and implementing public health interventions at both the national and sub-national levels in Nepal. My expertise lies in reviewing plans, policies, and guidelines related to health service delivery, evidence profiling, and tool development. I am proficient in analyzing and reporting on government health systems, as well as compiling information and tracking progress on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). I excel at preparing detailed reports that generate evidence from diverse sources, contributing to advocacy and lobbying efforts within the unique context of Nepal.
In addition, I possess strong skills in collecting best practices, synthesizing information from scientific publications and reports, generating research ideas, conducting papers and systematic reviews, and gathering scientific findings from various sources. Implementation research is an area where I have a solid understanding, as it addresses the challenges of putting research into practice, identifies optimal approaches for specific settings, and facilitates the uptake of research findings.
Throughout my professional journey, I have consistently achieved success in completing assigned tasks, demonstrating strong management, leadership, and interpersonal skills while collaborating with supervisors and coworkers. I am adept at maintaining productive relationships with stakeholders through effective communication.
My regular activities involve collecting best practices, compiling evidence, advocating for public health, and utilizing social media to disseminate vital health information. With unwavering dedication, I am committed to making a significant technical contribution to improving people's health in Nepal, and I strive to be a catalyst for positive change in the field of public health.
