The health crisis brought by Corona virus (Sars-Cov-2) pandemic reminded us that public health concerns are invariably primary and the rest, whether it is economic growth or personal wealth, is secondary. It exposed the inherent inequality and disparity in public’s access to health care services, both in developed and developing societies. On the bright side, it unearthed the strength, resilience, audacity and tenacity we humankind, in particular the Nepali community, has in fighting the global health challenges. Though health has been recognized as a fundamental right of all, the reality is far from it.
Over 8 million Nepali living in different parts of the globe and 29 million living in Nepal had to collective fight against the pandemic amid limited knowledge and resources. Via a scientific interaction among the healthcare professionals who are engaged in maintaining and improving the health of Nepali people, this symposium will explore both the limitations and strengths of our community. The theme of this session is public health for all, and mitigation of pandemic using innovation, collaboration and partnership. At the completion of this symposium, concrete Call For Action will be produced which will assist government agencies, general public and healthcare organizations in improving the health of Nepali people.
