Rapid economic development across Asia has brought about vast improvement in the health care industry with some traditional health metrics, such as infant mortality rate and infectious disease rate among others, decreasing while life expectancy across the board is increasing. However, this rosy and simplified view masks the sharp health care disparities underlying Asian nations as well as the diverse challenges they face.

Many factors from the varying levels of social, political and economic development to geology and climate change, which have been responsible for the recent earthquakes and seasonal typhoons and floods, have been reshaping the continent and spawning critical healthcare questions in need of tangible solutions. In Southern Asia, 1 in 16 children die before the age of five because of the effects of poverty and the absence of quality health care. Although life expectancy is increasing in the region, at 64 years, it desperately lags behind the rest of Asia. How can we ensure the equitable and efficient allocation of health-related resources across all Asia to meet basic needs and emergencies?   What role can policy makers play in creating affordable universal health care?

On the other end of the spectrum, well-developed nations like Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore boast a life expectancy over 80 years old.   This fact raises many questions concerning health policies including: How to address the aging populations and their subsequent ballooning health care costs, as well as the rising number of both non-communicable and dietary diseases, which severely affect all of Asia.

The 2015 Asian Symposium on Healthcare without Borders will be held in Hiroshima, Japan: The City of Peace. The three-day conference will provide an interdisciplinary platform for academics, researchers, policy makers, students and professionals. With the theme In Search of Sustainable Healthcare Quality and Delivery, it is hoped that today’s challenges in health care can be met with viable global solutions.
