ON World Health Day, ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) reiterated its commitment to sustainability by ensuring access to quality health services and a clean environment for all its member states. This commitment encompasses various initiatives, ranging from combating air pollution to promoting education and awareness about health and environmental issues.
