We greatly appreciate your continued support of the Health and Global Policy Institute (HGPI).
We have regrettably decided to postpone The 84th Breakfast Meeting – Recent Trends in Clinical Research and Development for Dementia scheduled on Friday, March 13, 2020.
As reported in recent news, COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019) has been getting a bigger issue in Japan.
In consideration of the safety of the speaker, participants, and our staff, we decided to postpone the event.
We sincerely apologize for the disappointing postponement especially to those who have been looking forward to this event, and we would be very grateful if you would kindly understand our decision, considering one of the most prioritized issues in the field of public health in Japan.
If you have any questions in regard to this event, please contact us in the following detail.
Specified Nonprofit Corporation, Health, and Global Policy Institute
Together with multi-stakeholders in Japan and abroad, Health and Global Policy Institute (HGPI) has engaged in various activities in the field of dementia including survey research and policy proposals. Through initiatives such as the Research Project on the Construction and Use of a Model for an International Public-Private Partnership (PPP) in Dementia Research conducted with the World Dementia Council (WDC) – which includes HGPI Chairman Dr. Kiyoshi Kurokawa as a member – discussions based on the perspectives of people with dementia and their families have been held repeatedly to produce proposals on topics ranging from major frameworks to specific policy proposals to find the ideal structure of society in an era when many people live with dementia.
Recently, the concept of a dementia-friendly society has permeated the public consciousness and many regions have announced that they now aim for its creation. Dementia policy also requires perspectives from clinical research and development based on medical science. Identifying the various disease mechanisms that result in dementia is an urgent issue and research on dementia prevention was one of the goals mentioned in the Framework for Promoting Dementia Care presented in 2019.
On that note, we are pleased to announce that the guest of our next Breakfast Meeting guest will be Dr. Yoshiki Niimi. Dr. Niimi is active in clinical research as an Assistant Professor at Fujita Health University’s Department of Neurology & Neuroscience. From his time as a former expert consultant on dementia measures at the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare’s Health and Welfare Bureau for the Elderly Office for Dementia Policy, Dr. Niimi has vast experience at the frontline of policy making.
Dr. Niimi was not only a member of the research team of the aforementioned Research Project on the Construction and Use of a Model for an International Public-Private Partnership (PPP) in Dementia Research, he has provided advice to HGPI’s Dementia Policy Project several times. He has a wide network both in Japan and abroad and is a particularly well-informed individual.
Together with everyone in the audience, we would like to deepen our understanding on recent trends in clinical research and development for dementia, how dementia policy is positioned in clinical research and development, and current goals in that field.
Dr. Yoshiki Niimi
