2010 Forum

This is NIHA’s first high-level forum on health policy. The Forum is similar to highly successful events such as Singapore International Water Week and the World Cities Summit. At this Forum, the first 5-year medium term research agenda for NIHA will be finalized. The other objectives of the Forum will be to promote discussions on key health challenges amongst key stakeholders and to identify common issues in health policy within an Asian context. The Forum also aims to foster consensus building and partnerships among key policy makers in Asian governments and industry.
