      “Public Health and Vulnerable Groups"

      The Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) and the Medical University of Lodz (UMED) are pleased to invite qualified young individuals from Asia and Europe to participate in the sixteenth edition of the ASEF University, to be held from 29 June to 10 July 2010 in the Republic of Poland.

      Participants will have the opportunity to share their knowledge and views on specific health-based topics of relevance for both regions. They will explore possible approaches to tackle the barriers to health disparities in a way which encourages and acknowledges their participation. The programme will include, among others, discussions on public health issues from a multi-perspective approach – and mainly aims to empower the participants to:

      1. Understand public health issues and challenges from the perspectives of Asia and Europe
      2. Promote discussion on how reducing barriers to quality healthcare services can be addressed
      3. Encourage young people to play an active role in promoting better health

      This edition of ASEF University will feature the ASEM process and integration in both regions, whilst emphasising the Asian and European perspectives on key global health challenges to our societies that often require cross-border solutions and international co-operation. The question of vulnerability will be discussed and addressed in this context.

      The ASEF University is open to university students from the 43 ASEM countries*. Participants are usually not more than 25 years old and should preferably be in their final undergraduate year or first graduate year. Successful applicants should have strong academic credentials and established leadership skills through involvement in extra-curricular activities. The programme would generally benefit students of International relations, Asian and European Studies, Development Studies, Public Health, Medicine, Human Rights, Economics & Finance, Political and Social Sciences.

      Please visit www.asef.org for the online application form and guidelines. 
      Deadline for applications is Friday, 09 April 2010.
