Asia-Pacific Regional Meeting 2021
12 – 20 July 2021, online
The Asia-Pacific region is the fastest-growing regional network within the International Federation of Medical Students’ Associations (IFMSA).
Now comprised of 20 National member organizations, (AMSA-Afghanistan, AMSA Australia, BMSS-Bangladesh, IFMSA-China, AMSAHK, MSAI India, CIMSA Indonesia, IFMSA-Japan, KazMSA Kazakhstan, AMSA-Kyrgyzstan, KMSA Korea, SMMAMS Malaysia, NMSS Nepal, IFMSAPakistan, AMSA Philippines, AMSA-Singapore, FMS-Taiwan, TJMSA Tajikistan, IFMSA Thailand, and UzMSA Uzbekistan), IFMSA Asia-Pacific represents the largest population of medical students in IFMSA. Our medical students hail from a huge diversity of cultures, geography, and societies.
Each year, new countries join the IFMSA Asia-Pacific, as more opportunities for global health learning and action open up to our medical students. The region has been an active participant in exchange programs, a host to many General Assemblies, and an organizer of various learning activities such as Sub-Regional Trainings, Special Interest Groups activities, and other capacity building opportunities. Importantly, an annual Regional Meeting – the Asia Pacific Regional Meeting – is hosted to gather medical students and future healthcare professionals across the region for an exchange of knowledge, ideas and cultures.
Regional Meetings take place every year in each IFMSA region and are hosted by at least one NMO from the respective region. The Asia-Pacific Regional Meeting is an annual meeting that serves the purpose of bringing together medical students across the Asia-Pacific.
