Global Health Asia-Pacific Student Case Competition 2019, Hosted by APRU and The New York Times

Challenge

The Asia-Pacific Case Competition challenges students to critically evaluate the global health policy ecosystem in the Asia Pacific and its potential to address United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (UNSDG) 3: Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages.

Mortality attributed to household and ambient air pollution in the Asia Pacific is higher than in the rest of the world, at 130 deaths per 100,000 population.

Write a policy brief to a leader in your economy outlining the threats to health from air pollution. What are the solutions you promote? What are the resources necessary? What are the ways that this solution will make an impact?

The competition is open to university students in the Asia-Pacific region and the winner will have their work recognized and published in The New York Times International Edition.
