A research agency, Generating Evidence, Improving Lives
HERD International is a national research and development organization with a vision of achieving health for all through strengthened health systems. We believe in evidence-based actions and focus our expertise on generating evidences, and effectively linking them to policy, strategies and practices.
Evidence generation through high-quality research, monitoring and evaluation and using data for decision making, is a major thrust of our work. We have a history of generating high quality evidence that have been reflected in national policies and strategies. We have been registered at Office of the Company Registrar under Ministry of Industry, Government of Nepal. Our central office is located in Kathmandu.
We have proven track record of end-to-end delivery of various large-scale research and evaluation studies such as national level household and health facility surveys; school and household assessment survey during the devastating earthquake of 2015 in Nepal, including other studies in the area of operational research, implementation research, qualitative and quantitative studies and mixed methods research, among others.
HERD International provides technical assistance to the government in the areas of policy and planning, service delivery, evidence generation and accountability, public financial management, quality of care, health infrastructure and gender equality, and social inclusion in health sector. In particular, we have extensive experience of providing technical assistance to Ministry of Health and Population and local governments in the areas of policy and planning and service delivery. For instance, one of our key contribution is in health system strengthening of Nepal government as one of the partner of Nepal Health Sector Strategy (NHSSP) funded by Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO).
