The Journal of Asian Medical Students’ Association (JAMSA) aims to serve as a platform for medical students to thrive and strive in the exponential development of evidence-based medicine. The main objective of JAMSA is to serve as a portal by documenting the research activities. To achieve that goal, we propose  partnerships with  conference committees to publish an Abstract Book consisting of scientific paper abstracts, scientific posters, and white papers.

Here, we present the Abstracts of the East Asian Medical Students’ Conference (EAMSC) 2021, Manila, Philippines. With the conference theme, “Communication in Healthcare - Sending the Right Message”, the EAMSC 2021 organised academic competitions to focus on the unique challenges posed by health communication strategies in their own countries, and how these affect the overall delivery of health services to their people. Abstracts of the Scientific Poster & Paper Competition and White Paper Competition  are published in this Abstract Book which will help the reader quickly ascertain the paper's purpose
