While the country slowly progressed on a federal structure, the management aspect from the three-tier government to contain COVID and respond to the immediate needs of citizens remained an interesting area. The research adopted a systematic review of the peer-reviewed articles with the selection of articles written within the Nepali context in the areas of COVID management. The research found the contrasting response strategy adopted between the first wave (2020) and the second wave (2021). Management strategies were centralized and dictated by the federal government citing the lack of clear acts and policies to delegate roles and responsibilities during the first wave, thus failing to respond timely and effectively. Roles were much clearer and decentralized during the second wave, as the federal government emphasized maintaining diplomatic relations to receive health equipment’s, test kits and vaccines, while local government emphasizes the management of isolation, quarantines, health care services and vaccination.
