As a consequence of population aging and socio-behavioural changes associated with globalization and urbanization, many health systems in the Asia-Pacific region are facing major challenges due to mismatch between priority setting, fiscal allocations and health needs, and the widening inequality in the provision of health services. To cope with these demands, health care reforms have been launched in many Asia-Pacific economies. To what extent are these health reforms successful? How have they modified established western models of service delivery to cater to the needs of their own situation, given the enormous diversity in health status? Twenty-three scholars, policy-makers, and experts from world-renowned universities, professional bodies, and governments shared their research and experience on health care delivery, health care financing, and major local and global challenges in health care reforms in the Asia-Pacific region, in order to promote international and interdisciplinary collaboration in developing effective and innovative strategies to reform the health system for the local context.
