On March 17, 2011, the International Myeloma Foundation (IMF) established the Asian Myeloma Network (AMN) at a meeting in Singapore. Composed of myeloma experts from China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, and Thailand, the IMF Asian Myeloma Network—the first of its kind in the region—has taken the lead in projects to assist IMF in providing physician education and patient support throughout Asia. Myeloma is a growing health problem in Asia, with an incidence that is approaching that in Western countries, but with a much larger population base.
