It has been a good end of year at BU for Nepal research. Last week we had an ethics paper accepted on ‘Cervical Cancer Screening: Ethical Consideration’ in the journal Medicolegal & Bioethics as well as a research paper on ‘Sexual health knowledge and risky sexual behaviour of Nepalese trekking guides’ which will appear in 2015 in the Journal of Manmohan Memorial Institute of Health Sciences.
We also had an editorial accepted on the importance of mixed-methods research in Nepal by the Nepal Journal of Epidemiology. The latter is linked to our planned Mixed-Methods Symposium on Saturday January 3rd 2015 in the city of Pokhara, Nepal (see our earlier BU Research Blog).
Yesterday we heard that we have been successful in our grant application to THET. Our grant forms part of the Health Partnership Scheme (HPS) that funds health partnerships to carry out training and capacity-building projects in low-income countries. The Scheme is funded by the UK Department for International Development and managed by THET.
