The ASEM Initiative for the Rapid Containment of Pandemic Influenza was launched in 2009 by ASEM leaders to combat avian influenza and possible human influenza pandemics. ASEF’s work in the area of Public Health is designed to achieve 2 objectives of the ASEM Initiative: to create a platform for enhanced collaboration on public health issues across Asia and Europe, and to maintain a stockpile of anti-viral drugs and personal protective equipment.

Our Work

The ASEF Public Health Network is a unique participatory platform that encourages public health dialogue in Asia and Europe. The Network provides space for health and non-health sector actors to share their knowledge and experience. This facilitates multi-stakeholder partnerships between representatives from governments, international organisations, business corporations and non-profit organisations.
