The 4th ICHF International Summit on Humanitarian Forensics 2022 on the theme Challenges and Solutions of Forensic Data Management‘ was very inspiring and I’m really delighted to have been able to be a part of this. It was an excellent opportunity to hear from experts. Prof. Dr. J.M. Vyas’s insights were noteworthy. Prof. Dr. G. Rajesh Babu’s zeal was infectious. Dr. Manish Das and Dr. Derek Congram were inspiring. It was great to hear & interact with colleagues from different countries. Being able to explore various departments & units of the National Forensic Sciences University, Gandhinagar was an added benefit.
Overall, this was an absolutely interesting, amazing & enlightening program with good event venue and presentations. 

Thank you ICHF and ICRC.

If Forensic Medicine in Nepal is still in in its Infancy, then we can say that Humanitarian Forensics is still in foetal development stage. In a country which is not immune to disasters whether manmade or natural, Humanitarian Forensic although overlooked is essential for the facilitation of Dignified management of the Dead among others. 

Humanitarian forensic is the application of the knowledge and skills of Forensic Medicine and science to humanitarian action, especially following conflicts or disasters. Delegates from South Africa, Maldives, Nepal, and various states of India were present in the inauguration ceremony. A 3-day 4th International Summit on Humanitarian Forensics on the theme of Challenges and Solutions of Forensic Data Management begins at National Forensic Sciences University (NFSU) on 29th November 2022. 

MELESON with this exposure will be better equipped to handle and sensitize the stake holders in terms in Humanitarian Forensics in Nepal.
