e-Health in Asia and the Pacific: Challenges and Opportunities

This report explores the experiences of countries in the Asia Pacific region, both in e-Health initiatives and policy actions. It also looks at the initiatives and polices at the trans-boundary level. The analysis both at national and regional levels sheds some light on the great potentials of e-Health in improvising the delivery of health care in the region, as well as the remaining challenges to fulfill such potentials. It is hoped that this would provide the basis for further research and analysis in specific areas, which would serve as a reliable guide for policy formulation and for regional cooperation.
