The APBEN was established in 2018 as part of an initiative led by the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Bioethics education is vital in assisting students, professionals, policy makers and the public to understand and address the ethical, legal and social dimensions of policy and practice.
APBEN aims to bring together academics and professionals working in bioethics education in the Asia Pacific region to create connections, facilitate collaboration and share ideas and innovations to enhance bioethics education.
