The AeHIN Workshop Proceedings (September 2012) is now available. The Workshop builds upon the Draft AeHIN Strategic Plan (August 2012), a regional approach to country-level changes and impacts in eHealth, HIS, and CRVS strengthening. The strategy will be finalised in the coming weeks to reflect the shared priorities and key actions identified by AeHIN members and countries. If you have any additional feedback, please the Secretariat.
The Asia eHealth Information Network (AeHIN) is a unique forum to promote better use of information and communication technology (ICT) to achieve better health. The AeHIN is open to all eHealth, HIS, and CRVS professionals from multiple sectors within South and Southeast Asia—including developed and low- and middle-income countries—to maximize a regional approach for greater country-level health impacts.
AeHIN builds directly upon several outcomes of the 2011 Asia-Pacific HIS Country Ownership and Leadership Forum (www.hisforum.org), where participants called for increased inter-country collaboration, openness, strategic reuse, and peer-to-peer assistance in better and new ways.
Collaborating partners supporting the August 2012 AeHIN Workshop include:
A brief, high-level *draft* AeHIN Strategic Plan: 2012-2017 addresses some of the challenges already identified by the organising members of AeHIN from Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, and Viet Nam. Through consultation with AeHIN members and development partners, this plan will be prioritised and enhanced with detailed actions and next steps, costing, timelines, identification of roles and responsibilities of key partners, and include a monitoring and evaluation framework. This document can be used to influence national eHealth, HIS, and CRVS policies, strategies, plans, coordination, activities, and change/risk management through peer-to-peer learning and sharing.
