journal contributionposted on 2023-05-16, 22:38 authored by Kenneth KirkbyKenneth Kirkby
With over 60% of the world's population, the two most widely spoken global languages, rapid economic growth and high uptake of information communications technology, the Asian region is poised to make a major contribution to psychiatric networks. These networks comprise a matrix of professional associations, regional development frameworks, clinical services, consumer and carer organizations, research collaborations and population interventions. Notable developments include the rise of supranational associations centred on or active in the Asian region, regional and international conference activity, information exchanges between services, research funding networks, and disease awareness campaigns with a strong Internet base. Such activities form a supportive and collaborative milieu for professionals, administrators, and members of the community, who are seeking practical ways to raise the standards of mental healthcare in diverse health settings, economic conditions and cultures.
