Asia-Pacific Health Policy Forum
The mission of the Asia-Pacific Health Policy Forum (APHPF) is to serve as a resource for social science research, teaching, and evidence-based policymaking about health and healthcare in the Asia-Pacific region.
Specifically, APHPF aims to
- encourage collaboration among social scientists doing research on health policy in the Asia-Pacific region;
- serve as a resource for teaching about health and healthcare in specific countries and regions within the Asia-Pacific;
- provide analysis to inform policy, by offering a forum for rapid dissemination of policy-relevant research results, as well as by linking organizations, programs, conferences and white papers about specific health policy issues; and
- raise awareness and foster dialogue among researchers, policymakers, and business about cross-cutting themes and global challenges of health and healthcare access, quality, and cost, within the specific historical and cultural contexts of the diverse nations of the Asia-Pacific.
The Asia-Pacific Health Policy Forum invites scholars from multiple disciplines to join the Forum. Your information will be saved in our online database, searchable by name, country or region of focus, discipline and topic. We encourage all researchers with an interest in health and healthcare in the Asia-Pacific to submit information about upcoming conferences and sessions within larger disciplinary conferences that focus on any aspect of health policy in the Asia-Pacific.
The Asia-Pacific Health Policy Forum (APHPF) supports researcher interest in providing multidisciplinary evidence for improved health policy in the Asia-Pacific. We encourage all participants to keep informed of developments of the Asia Pacific Observatory on Health
Systems and Policies (APO) launched in 2011:
