22–23 October 2019, Wellington, New Zealand.
The National Ethics Advisory Committee is proud to announce that in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO) and support of the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), NEAC is hosting the second Asia-Pacific Regional Meeting for National Bioethics/Ethics Committees.
The Republic of Korea held the inaugural AP-NEC meeting in 2017.
The Asia-Pacific Regional Meeting for National Bioethics/Ethics Committees is held once in every two years and brings together national ethics committees, as well as ethics/bioethics focal points in governments, from around the world to share their thoughts and experiences in relation to bioethical issues.
The Regional Meeting takes place between the Global Summit of Bioethics Committees. This is a biennial forum for national bioethics representatives to share information and experiences on ethical issues in health and public health. It is a platform for discussion and formulates consensus on a wide range of prominent ethical topics.

Official invitations will be issued through the WHO Regional Office for the Western Pacific Office. Support for travel costs may be provided, as appropriate, based on eligibility and need.
