Join us for the exclusive launch of Vriens & Partners' latest report: Healthcare Government Affairs in Southeast Asia – Political Dynamics and Policy Drivers in the ASEAN Healthcare Landscape.

Southeast Asia's booming healthcare sector presents many opportunities for companies, thanks to the region's growing population, affluence and healthcare needs, and dynamic economies. Governments around the region have made healthcare provision a key political issue, and are committed to expanding healthcare access and improving quality. However, politicians and policymakers alike struggle to expand universal healthcare while ensuring adequate financing, and simultaneously juggle political pressures around the sector. In some countries, public healthcare provision is further burdened by complex or even broken healthcare systems and institutions, and weak bureaucratic or implementation capacity. To become part of the growth story in Southeast Asia, companies need to understand and navigate local political and policy environments. Healthcare, in particular, is fundamentally political – shaped by stakeholders within and around government, and throughout the ecosystem of healthcare policy and delivery – and successful healthcare companies work to establish trust, identify areas of shared interest, and partner with governments and public institutions to address these challenges.

Join us to hear from Vriens & Partners' Country Directors, and APACMed's Member Country Leaders to discuss key issues and trends, and strategic recommendations for healthcare companies to expand their activities across seven Southeast Asian countries.
