Dear APACMed Members and Friends,

Welcome, we hope you will benefit from the many events and articles we have made available on our website.

Since its formation in 2014, APACMed has grown from strength to strength – we now have over 140 MedTech organisations and manufacturers from across the Asia Pacific region as our members, and a network of established partnerships with key regional bodies, health ministry officials, academic institutions, and research organisations.

At APACMed, we remain committed to working together to ensure improved patient outcomes and high-quality care. Our strength continues to lie with our core functional committee teams who converge to influence and impact their specific domains. I encourage you to access some of the great content created by these teams, available in the resource section.

2020 is shaping up to be a pivotal year for the Medical Technology industry, we are at the forefront of addressing some of the most critical challenges that have emerged during this pandemic crisis. Despite this, however, it is also a time of great opportunity where we can significantly contribute to the strengthening of the region’s healthcare infrastructure and delivery of care for the future. The world needs to work together to grow a more robust and adaptive healthcare ecosystem and this calls for greater collaboration between all stakeholders across the MedTech landscape.

Warm regards,

Harjit Gill,
