WELCOME TO APBENAsia Pacific Bioethics Education Network


The Asia Pacific Bioethics Education Network aims to bring together experts in bioethics education at institutions in the Asia Pacific region in order to create linkages, and facilitate collaboration and sharing of ideas, innovations and materials to enhance bioethics education.

Bioethics education is vital in assisting students, providers, policy makers and the public-at-large understand and address key ethical, legal and social questions involved with health care. These bioethical issues arise in the context of a variety of social, cultural and institutional contexts that are important to appreciate and understand.
