Event description

Description

The Office for Global Health in cooperation with the Sydney Southeast Asia Centre invites you to WOMEN AND HEALTH: Celebrating 50 Years of ASEAN Women, a forum in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.

The forum will feature the contribution of outstanding individuals from the ASEAN community, and will be an opportunity to share the valuable contribution of exceptional individuals make to improving health in ASEAN countries. We take opportunities such as this to highlight capacities to positively influence others in our various roles in the health sector – be it in research, education, practice, advocacy and policy. Given the challenges in the region, we aim to contribute to continuous learning, teaching and research by broadening awareness and understanding of each other’s culture, values, traditions and practices.
