Abstract

Health research in any field is essential for the health development in the country as a whole. There is a disparity of health research between high income- and low-middle income- countries (LMICs) around the globe. Health research is severely affected by COVID-19 pandemic particularly in LMICs like Nepal. However, the number of COVID-19 related research reports have increased dramatically. Many non-COVID researches were either halted or dropped altogether because of the priority issues particularly in LMICs. Even essential health services were also affected during COVID-19 pandemic. However, beginning from the later part of the 2020, non-COVID health related publications also increased in Nepal because of free time for non-COVID health professionals when most of health resources were mobilized to manage COVID patients.
