Abstract:

On February 3, 2006, The CNA Corporations Project Asia held a one-day conference entitled Asia and the Science and Politics of Pandemics. This conference brought together a broad group of policy-makers, health care professionals, and academics to discuss the political and scientific issues of prevention and planning for a possible pandemic in Asia. The goal of the conference was to focus on Asia as a potential epicenter of emerging diseases, discuss the response capacities of various Asian health systems, and explore health crises as political issues for regional governments in Asia.
