This was the second in a series of meetings on Southeast Asia, organised to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of the China Medical Board. Health patterns in Southeast Asia have changed in profound respects over the past century, and so have the medical connections between Southeast Asia, China and international institutions. The project aims to develop a new approach to the transnational history of health in Southeast Asia , examining the sites of interaction and exchange in which ideas about medicine and health travelled and were transformed.

The meeting in Yogyakarta was organised by the Joint Centre for History and Economics in cooperation with Universitas Gadjah Mada. It brought together the authors commissioned to contribute to the volume to come out of the research project, together with Indonesian, and other colleagues working in this field. The meeting discussed the outline papers and features for the volume and planned the summer school to be held in Cambridge in 2013.

The Centre for History and Economics is grateful to the China Medical Board for their support, and to our partners, the Department of History and the Center for Southeast Asia Social Study, Universitas Gadjah Mada.
