Special Issue on Asia eHealth Information Network (AeHIN)
Journal of the Thai Medical Informatics Association (JTMI)


The Asia eHealth Information Network (AeHIN) was created by the World Health Organization to promote knowledge exchange and resource sharing on health information systems and eHealth among countries in Asia. AeHIN maintains that better health can be achieved by strengthening evidence-based policies and health systems through better quality and timely health information systems and civil registration and vital statistics.  AeHIN further asserts the role of ICT for health as an enabler to improve the flow of information, through electronic means, to support the delivery of quality and equitable healthcare services and management of health systems.
