Republic of Korea

Under Strategy 2030, ADB will sustain its efforts to eradicate extreme poverty and expand its vision to achieve a prosperous, inclusive, resilient, and sustainable Asia and the Pacific. Health sector development is one of the key operational priorities under the Strategy 2030.  ADB will support its developing member countries to achieve better health for all as well as other service delivery in social sectors for those in need.

With this background, ADB and Korea Health Industry Development Institute (KHIDI) co-organized a workshop on “Digital Technologies for Sustainable Healthcare Systems”. The objective of the workshop was to have a program that will allow ADB staff and DMC participants to improve understanding on the use of digital technologies in public health service, health professions education, and national health information system. Republic of Korea’s experience in the health sector was showcased through site visits and interactive discussion sessions. The workshop aimed for ADB staff and DMC participants to identify potential project.
