The 2020 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Healthy Women, Healthy Economies Research Prize is now accepting applications for outstanding research work that strives to improve women’s health, economic well-being, and chart more inclusive growth.
Launched last year, the prize encourages applicants to promote sex-disaggregated data and gender-based research that will help policymakers and businesses determine and close the policy gaps impacting women’s health. The initiative is supported by leading science and technology company Merck.
The APEC is a regional economic forum established in 1989 to leverage the growing interdependence of the Asia-Pacific. APEC’s 21 members aim to create greater prosperity for the people of the region by promoting balanced, inclusive, sustainable, innovative and secure growth and by accelerating regional economic integration.
