Coronavirus emergency and APRU universities

Coronavirus emergency and APRU universities

February 10, 2020

We express our concern and support to our members at this very difficult and unpredictable time. The APRU Chair and Secretary General have expressed their concern in this letter to APRU members in China and Hong Kong SAR.

To assist APRU members as you confront this health challenge and associated policy responses from around the region we have posted this web page.

During the SARS emergency, APRU universities found it very helpful to know what others were doing to respond.  Therefore, we have put up this web page which includes links to members’ websites stating their policies and the actions they are taking.
