Who We Are
The Asia Health Policy Program (AHPP) at Stanford’s Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center empowers health systems and policymakers in the Asia-Pacific region to improve their proactive responses to population health problems. We contribute Asia-specific evidence to guide healthcare providers and policy audiences towards better understanding of health and demographic issues and more effective delivery of disease management and other health services. We do so by conducting comparative research, collaborating with experts throughout the Asia-Pacific region and around the world, supporting young scholars from the region, hosting public forums, and sharing our publications.

Health, Medicine, and Longevity: Our 2020-21 Colloquium Series
Recently at AHPP
Nobel Laureate in Economics Oliver Hart joined us to give the keynote address at our 2020-21 colloquium series, "Health, Medicine, and Longevity: Exploring Public and Private Roles." Hart reflects on the many applications that his theory 'The Proper Use of Government' has had since its publication 25 years ago, and his view of its future role in research and economics.
A Quarter Century of ‘The Proper Scope of Government’: Theory and Applications
Our research projects encompass issues such as chronic disease management, public-private collaborations tackling innovation for healthy aging, the economics of financing longevity, and productivity adjusted for quality in healthcare, among others.
We share our research findings through peer-reviewed journals, scholarly and trade presses, Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center’s publishing program, and our own working paper series.
