Home Conference Women’s Health Conference 2023


Women’s Health Conference 2023 is the first conference in Nepal looking broadly at women’s health. Disparities, discrimination and development challenges put so many women at extreme risk. In order to address this, we need to consider the multifaceted nature of women’s health conditions and explore trends in this sector for a well informed and evidence guided future course of action.

The Conference aims to promote and strengthen the interconnectedness of research, training, policy making, practice and advocacy evidence to expand women’s health agenda in Nepal. To that end, it will provide a platform for participants to discuss and disseminate evidence on what works and what doesn’t work and how successful programs can be expanded to reach different groups in society.


The conference aims to:

  • To provide a platform for researchers to disseminate their training, research, policy and practice engagement approaches and outcomes to a wider audience.
  • To showcase innovations and successes in women’s health training, education, practices, research and policy engagements from other intervention programmes and projects across Nepal.
  • To strengthen partnerships and collaboration among policy makers and practitioners in the areas of women’s health.
  • To identify priority women’s health areas to inform policy and practice to improve universal health status and services among women.
