  ASIAN SOCIETY FOR THE HISTORY OF MEDICINE 

Introduction

The Asian Society for the History of Medicine (ASHM) was founded in July of 2001, at a gathering at the International Research Center for Japanese Studies (Kyoto), which brought together medical historians from numerous Asian countries.
The Society is a purely academic, non-profit organization, devoted to advancing the study of the history of medicine (non-Asian as well as Asian, and including the histories of public health, dentistry, pharmacy, nursing, and allied arts, sciences, and professions) in Asian countries. Its chief purpose is to foster international cooperation and scholarly exchange among medical historians working in Asian countries, and to serve as a bridge for these historians to other medical history organizations around the world.
 Specifically, the Society plans to:

     1.  Organize meetings once every two years
     2.  Issue a newsletter every six months
     3.  Maintain a registry of medical historians in Asia

The Secretariat of the Society is housed in the Institute of History and Philology, Academia Sinica in Taipei.

The Secretariat can be contacted at:
