National HIV Research Agenda in Nepal

Ministry of Health and Population

Proven and evidence-based interventions are of paramount importance for achieving the national target of halving new HIV infections. Understanding the dynamics of the HIV epidemic through systematic evidence is critical for addressing the knowledge gaps for an effective policy and planning decisions in response to HIV and Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI). National Centre for AIDS and STD Control (NCASC) and its partners, therefore, developed the National HIV Research Agenda to inform research gaps and to enhance quality, coverage and effectiveness of HIV prevention, treatment, care and support services in Nepal.
