To better deliver these services locally, ACHSI manages operations from its Hong Kong and Dubai offices.

The organisation continues to navigate challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic, but looks towards a positive future to diversify its services, deliver upon its strategy, and offer trusted partnership to healthcare organisations around the world.
