Despite varying nature of Asian countries and their health systems, this new comparative country study, published by APO, highlights future opportunities and threats that they all have in common. The central aim of this book is to build a strong and robust evidence base that can be of assistance in developing local expertise in health systems and generate innovative and effective solutions to enhance health systems in Asia. The book assesses health system performance along three elements of people-centeredness, system resilience and quality. It comprises four cross country chapters focusing on regional governance, non-communicable diseases, infectious diseases and planetary health followed by summary of the health systems from seven countries in Asia: Cambodia, Indonesia, Japan, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand and The Philippines.
