This conference, a joint effort by the Asia Centre for Health Security (ACHS) of SSHSPH and ASEF PHN, will serve as a crucial platform for experts from Asia and Europe to exchange best practices and lessons learnt from the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond, and to develop collaborative strategies. We look forward to transformative outcomes coming from this conference.
