Elsevier Health System Reform in Asia Conference
Date:5/16/2011

Elsevier and the journal Social Science and Medicine announce Health System Reform in Asia, a first of its kind, interdisciplinary conference which focuses on the health system reforms Asian countries have adopted, or are considering adopting during rapid economic, social, demographic and epidemiologic change in the region. The conference seeks to attract international social science scholars, policymakers and professionals working in health services research and public health.

Comparisons of reform experiences within and outside Asia are particularly encouraged. The conference welcomes empirical examinations of health outcomes, social, economic and political analyses, as well as theoretical and philosophical contributions on these themes. We also welcome offers of workshops and symposia (organised sessions).

The following highly-esteemed scholars have been confirmed and will be featured at the conference:

  • Ellen Annandale, Department of Sociology, University of Leicester, UK
  • Steve Birch, Clinical Epidemiology & Biostatistics, McMaster University, Canada
  • Gerry Bloom, Institute of Development Studies, University of Sussex, UK
