Abstract: The Asia Pacific Strategy for Emerging Diseases (APSED) has been used as a regional strategic framework for the core capacity building required under the International Health Regulations (2005). The goal of the APSED workplan is for all countries and areas of the Asia-Pacific Region to have the minimum capacity for epidemic alert and response by 2010 in the five programme areas of work. These five programme areas are: surveillance and response, laboratory strengthening, infection control, zoonoses and risk communication. The South-East Asia Region as a whole is making good progress towards achieving the strategy's stated objectives. The Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) agreed to fund the implementation of APSED in Indonesia and Timor-Leste in the South-East Asia Region for a four-year period from 2007-2010. This meeting was held to monitor progress in implementation of the project and to agree follow up actions.
