And welcome to the third newsletter of Health Analytics Asia.
Do you think we are friends? Before you roll your eyes, let me give the context. Sunday was Friendship Day. While the adolescents and teens were busy exchanging emojis, uploading insta stories, and doing whatever it is that cool youngsters do for their BFFs, I was counting the number of friends I have. It was quite a task!

Do colleagues (past and present), acquaintances (distant and close), relatives (kind and unkind), virtual ‘friends’ (valuable and not-so-valuable) count? After much deliberation, a friend and I came to the conclusion that there are all sorts of friendships. And that’s, perhaps, the beauty of it. No two friends are the same. Each bond is unique.

At Health Analytics Asia, we are working towards harnessing the power of collaboration. Imagine the possibilities when thought leaders, healthcare specialists, data scientists and journalists across Asia come together to build a vibrant community for change!

The journey of a thousand miles, as the saying goes, starts with a single step. So, doctors, data researchers and healthcare enthusiasts, here’s an opportunity to join our award-wining initiative to combat the ever-growing malice of medical misinformation and fake health news. Visit www.ha-asia.com to know more. Once you read our stories – some in words, others in numbers – we would appreciate your honest feedback. Bouquets, brickbats, constructive criticism, suggestions on collaboration…we welcome them all.

Until we meet again (and become friends), stay informed, stay healthy.
