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.
