The Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia (ERIA) and Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) Bangkok co-hosted a joint research workshop on Human Resources for Health and Elderly Care in Asia. The workshop was held in Jakarta on 11 February 2019.

The participants of the workshop were members of ERIA’s research project ‘Human Resources for Health and Elderly Care in Asia’. In a broader context, the findings of this study indicated implication for policies on labour and employment, as well as human resource development in the healthcare sector. Moreover, it provided various perspectives on nursing and elderly care, as well as the practice of employing care workers from overseas.

Dr Osuke Komazawa, Special Advisor on Healthcare and Long Term Care Policy from ERIA and Yuko Tsujita, Senior Research Fellow from JETRO Bangkok delivered the welcome remarks for the workshop.
