August 15 - October 21

The fifth APRU Global Health Student Case Competition gave students an opportunity to practice critical-thinking and problem-solving skills to help address a global health challenge- Improving elderly care in the Asia-Pacific. Teams of 4-6 students had about twelve weeks to prepare a 10-minute video in English, proposing a realistic, well designed, and innovative solution.

The competition brought total 45 teams from 22 universities in 12 economies (Australia, China, Ecuador, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, and the US) to develop creative and evidence-based proposals to address the complex challenge.

The three finalist teams (in an alphabetical order) are:

  • MoreDoe from Yonsei University
  • The Yellow Jackets from University of Indonesia
  • Toilet Paper Hoggers from The Chinese University of Hong Kong

The three runner-up teams were PH Pro (Fudan University), Team Medeavour (The Chinese University of Hong Kong), and Terps for Health (University of Maryland, College Park).

Total fifteen international judges were invited to review the entries.

A winning team will be selected and announced at the APRU Global Health Conference 2020.
A prize of USD 500 will be awarded.
