ABR Seminar: UHC (28-29 Jan 2019)

The Asian Bioethics Review is organising an international seminar on Universal Health Coverage on 28 and 29 January 2019 at the Shaw Foundation Alumni House at NUS in Singapore.

There is a degree of continuity with our February 2018 research conference, as we will be revisiting the theme of Universal Health Coverage (UHC). This is a topic that the Centre for Biomedical Ethics (CBmE), which hosts the journal, has committed to work on as a WHO Collaborating Centre for Bioethics.

Additionally, there is also a degree of continuity with the workshop on “Writing Case Reports for Bioethics Journals” that ABR organised on 4 December 2018 as a pre-congress event to the 14th IAB World Congress of Bioethics in Bengaluru, India, as we will be inviting some promising junior scholars. This aspect relates to the capacity building role of the journal.
