The Asian-Pacific Newsletter can also be read in ISSUU
* * * * * * * *

The Asian-Pacific Newsletter on Occupational Health and Safety was established in 1994, as a part of the ILO/FINNIDA Asian-Pacific Regional Programme on Occupational Safety and Health. The newsletter is distributed to Asian and Pacific countries but also worldwide. The Asian-Pacific Newsletter is free of charge and comes out three times a year. 

The guiding principle in selecting themes to the Newsletter is to cover the field of occupational health and safety as widely as possible.

The Asian-Pacific Newsletter has received a great deal of positive and encouraging feedback from the readers, authors, international organizations and from all collaborators.  The Finnish Institute of Occupational Health FIOH  did not find any possibility to continue the editing and publishing of the Asian-Pacific Newsletter from 2016 onwards.

We want to thank all the contributors, experts, readers and the international organizations for their support, and for sharing their expertise for the benefit of workers of the world.
