The APEC Digital Hub for Mental Health’s working group on the focus area Data Standardization, with the Philippines as co-lead, heeding to the call for the implementation of the Roadmap for Mental Wellness 2020 and pursuing the Digital hub’s vision to emerge as an online catalyst to foster awareness, share information, build capacity and scale up innovation & systems evaluation, will hold a Round Table Meeting in the Philippines in September 2018. This project will serve as a locus for:
a) exchange of innovative programs, evidence or practice based initiatives of the different economies on Data Standardization;
b) opportunities of new engagements and collaborations;
c) discussion of its concept and its incremental approach in yielding an implementation design in the Digital Hub; and
d) establishment of linkages with the other focus area working groups of the APEC digital hub for mental health.
The Round Table Meeting will include core Hub partners, leaders of the APEC Fora, senior officials of the Department of Health of the Philippines, and leaders from the international mental health community and industry.
