Initiation of social pharmacy research in Nepal: our experiences
Nepal experiences several medicine-use problems like any other developing country. In the recent years, there have been initiatives
to introduce the concept of social pharmacy in Nepal, and there has been only a limited research in this area. The staff members
at the Manipal College of Medical Sciences, Pokhara have shown keen interest in initiating several social pharmacy-related
researches in the country. The members of this institute have been collaborating with two international universities, namely
Universiti Sains Malaysia located in Malaysia and Chulalongkorn University located in Thailand, to get academic and technical
supports. In this manuscript, the authors share their experiences in initiating social pharmacy research in the country. Authors
have also mentioned the priority areas of social pharmacy research in Nepal and the importance of initiating this concept
in the country.
