Publication: Proceedings of the “Expert Meeting on Regional Integration and Infectious Diseases”

Project Updates


4 Oct 2011

Based on the discussions from the “Expert Meeting on Regional Integration and Infectious Diseases”, these meeting proceedings provide highlights of the assessment of regional mechanisms in controlling infectious diseases. The proceedings also outline recommendations for further collaboration between Asia and Europe.

For this meeting, ASEF Public Health Network gathered a group of experts representing regional institutions, international organisations, national agencies, research institutes and civil society organisations. Participants introduced their current working mechanisms in the fields such as vaccines strategies, communication, and international cooperation. They also shared their experiences during the outbreak of H1N1 influenza pandemic.

The Meeting allowed ASEF to explore the areas to strengthen Asian-Europe collaboration on public health. As part of its initiatives on public health, ASEF launched a joint research initiative (2011) through an open call for proposals. In addition, ASEF will also commence a series of research exchange workshop in 2012.
