Asia-Pacific Network for Health Systems Strengthening

Asia Pacific Network for Health Systems Strengthening (ANHSS) was launched in 2009 to satisfy the growing need for a platform for knowledge improvement and exchange in health systems strengthening in the Asia region.

The health system reforms carried out by the countries in the region often demand reference to evidence-based successful policies and programmatic innovation. In parallel, the country institutions command an increasing role in the region for capacity building and knowledge dissemination.

As a result, ANHSS was initially established as a consortium style regional network to support knowledge transfer and capacity building.
