The East Asian Forum of Nursing Scholars (EAFONS) was established by Professor Ida Martinson and colleagues at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University School of Nursing in 1997.

EAFONS provides a regional forum for doctoral-prepared nurse academics and their students to exchange knowledge and insight on current trends and research. Since its establishment, annual EAFONS forums have been held in Hong Kong, Japan, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, and Thailand. The most recent EAFONS hosts include:

• Chiang Mai University
• Ewha Woman’s University
• The Hong Kong Polytechnic University
• Japan Association of Nursing Programs in Universities
• Burapha University
• National Taiwan University
• National University of Singapore
• University of Philippines (Manila)
