The FIBA Asia Under-16 Championship for Women is an international under-16 female basketball championship in the International Basketball Federation's FIBA Asia zone. The event started in 2009 and is held bi-annually since then, and the winners usually compete in the then called FIBA Under-17 World Championship for Women, which started in 2010.

Because of the recent change in the FIBA Calendar and the inclusion of Australia and New Zealand in all Asian tournaments, a new competition format was introduced at the start of the 2017 edition. Aside from renaming the tournament to FIBA Under-16 Women's Asian Championship, it will now be composed of two (2) divisions (namely Divisions A and B) with a maximum of eight (8) teams each to participate.

Division A teams will now contest for the four (4) slots allocated for the FIBA Under-17 Women’s Basketball World Cup; meaning the semifinalists will be assured of a seat in the U17 Worlds. Meanwhile, the team that will place eighth and last in the division will be relegated to Division B in the next tournament. The remaining top seven teams will be retained up to the next tournament as well.

Division B teams will be using the same format as that of Division A, but unlike the previous setup wherein there were qualifying matches for the top two teams of the division, only the Division Champions will be promoted to Division A in the next tournament.
