IAPO’s Asia-Pacific Patients Congress is our regional event which brings together the objectives of the Global Patients to the Asia-Pacific region. The Congress aims to bring together patient experts and health stakeholders including researchers, nurses, health financiers, regulators, health service providers and pharmaceutical industry representatives to map out how we can all harmonise and align our agendas with national health policies and plans on Universal Health Coverage in the region. The Congress is organized by IAPO and co-presented by Dakshayani and Amaravati Health and Education and Indian Alliance of Patient Groups.
The 2020 Congress Programme will reflect on the impact of COVID-19, the ongoing developments and the next steps towards achieving UHC in the region in the midst of COVID-19.

The COVID-19 pandemic has shown us that we must work together in improving global health. We must have national unity and global solidarity to advance health care for all. Our health systems must be repaired and then strengthened through a whole of government and whole of society effort. The whole of the patient community has a very important role to play in strengthening the health systems. Expert patients can provide insight and perspectives that can make health care safe, quality, accessible, acceptable and affordable. Patient leadership is now critical for health systems strengthening within the Asia-Pacific Region.
