Donaldo Direcor E-mail : The linguistic and demographic variety of INCLEN-Asia was acknowledged as a challenge and an opportunity. Foundation for the Advancement of Clinical Epidemiology Inc. (FACE Inc.) is a registered not-for-profit organization that looks after fund management, financial statement maintenance, auditing and book-keeping for INCLEN-Asia. On the other hand, if INCLEN- Asia had tried to register in another member country, it could have been a tedious and expensive task. Thus FACE could be the registered organization for the INCLEN-Asia network.
