The 2019 Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) was held in Bangkok, Thailand and was hosted by the Health Systems Research Institute (HSRI). The ASM ran from 11-15 November and included the Implementation Science Workshop on the first 2 days of the week.
About 70 participants, including donors, researchers and implementers gathered, network and share experiences on research studies on hypertension, diabetes, mental health and lung health.
