S T Lee Lecture: Health Systems and Population Ageing in the Asia-Pacific Region
6 September 2012
The 2012 S T Lee Lecture will be delivered by Professor Kai Hong Phua, National University of Singapore. Professor Phua will speak on the topic of Health Systems and Population Ageing in the Asia-Pacific Region: Challenges and Policy Options for the Future.
It is timely to take stock and monitor the trends and issues in healthcare systems around the region and to identify from a comparative perspective, the challenges that have arisen with changing social, economic and political conditions, and the ways in which governments are responding to these challenges. In this regard, it would be important to examine the changing roles concerning the interface between the public, private and voluntary sectors; the extent of public-private participation and integration in health and social care; and the policy implications in terms of future developments for health governance, education and research throughout the region.
