From Editors

CHPAMS Newsletter is a monthly e-newsletter from the China Health Policy and Management Society (CHPAMS). The Newsletter serves as a communication platform to provide updates and activities related to CHPAMS and information of potential interest for CHPAMS members.


In October 2017, CHPAMS started the nomination process for the 2017 Inspiration Award. A five-member Award Selection Committee was formed, made up of CHPAMS President Dr. Zhuo (Adam) Chen and four distinguished researchers. We received highly qualified nominations for the Award.  After deliberation, the Committee agreed that the nominees, although strong candidates, fell short of meeting the high expectation for the distinguished Inspiration Award. Therefore, the Committee regretfully chose not to select an awardee for the 2017 CHPAMS Inspiration Award.
