Nepal Health and Research Council (NHRC) promotes research culture by facilitating communication between researchers and policymakers to translate evidence into health policies, programmes and practices. The Ninth National Summit is a continuum of the previous annual summits as an annual gathering of researchers, academicians, scientists, practitioners, and policymakers to exchange ideas and health research evidence on national health issues and priorities focusing translation of evidence and innovations into actions.
