The outcomes and policy recommendations from the conference will be considered for a special health issue of Asia and the Pacific Policy Studies journal. This special issue, due to be published in May 2015 aims to capture innovative thinking, knowledge transition and collective action on health policy in the Asia and the Pacific region.
