APRU Global Health Student Case Competition 2019

February 18 - May 10










The fourth annual APRU Global Health Case Competition is open for registration. This year’s challenge is Social Networking Intervention to Promote Physical Activity Among Young People in Urban Environments

In this challenge, teams are asked to develop a hypothetical intervention to increase physical activity rates among young people in an urban environment in the Asia-Pacific region. The intervention plan should incorporate innovative, cost-effective, and culturally-appropriate strategies that are evidence-based.

The case competition gives students an opportunity to practice their critical-thinking and problem-solving skills to help solve global health challenges. Teams of 4-6 students will have to prepare a 10-minute video in English, proposing a realistic, well designed, and innovative solution.

The top three videos will be chosen by a panel of APRU Global Health Program advisory group and experts, and be shown at the 13th APRU Global Health Conference in Hong Kong on Nov. 19, 2019. The winning team will be selected and announced at the Conference, and a prize of USD 500 will be awarded.

Go ahead and exercise your critical thinking skills to help solve a “real world” health challenge!
