The Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF), founded in 1997, is an intergovernmental not-for-profit organisation representing the 53 Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) Partners: 30 European and 21 Asian countries, plus the European Union and the ASEAN Secretariat. Following the 6th ASEM Summit (ASEM6; 2006; Helsinki, Finland) where the leaders expressed their determination to combat avian influenza and a possible human influenza pandemic, the “ASEM Initiative for the Rapid Containment of Pandemic Influenza”, financially supported by the Government of Japan, was launched at the 9th ASEM Foreign Ministers’ Meeting (ASEM FMM9; 2009; Hanoi, Viet Nam). Since then, the two components of the Initiative, ASEM stockpile of anti-viral drugs and personal protective equipment, as well as ASEF Public Health Network (ASEF PHN) have contributed to strengthening ASEM Partners’ capacity for managing Public Health Emergencies (PHEs).

 

ASEF PHN & Risk Communication for PHEs

ASEF PHN’s scope is not limited to pandemic influenza – it expands to Emerging Infectious Diseases (EIDs) as well as Pandemic Preparedness and Response (PPR). ASEF PHN has been working on Risk Communication for PHEs – Prior to the pandemic, ASEF PHN implemented a series of High-level Meetings focusing on Risk Communication & Leadership (2017), How Can We Include Migrants & Ethnic Minorities (2018), and Risk Communication Beyond the Country Borders (2019) for effective Risk Communication during PHEs. In 2020, ASEF PHN conducted a research project “Monitoring and Evaluation for edidence-based Risk Communication during the COVID-19 pandemic”. During the pandemic, virtual conferences were implemented focusing on “Risk Communication during high uncertainty”, “Combatting infodemic & effective use of social media” & “Increasing vaccine confidence”sharing good practices and lessons learnt across Aisa and Europe during the COVID-19 pandemic, followed by the hybrid meeting “the Role of Risk Communication in Pandemics” in 2022.
