(Event Report) Health Policy Academy, Health Policy 101: Study Group 4 (August 29, 2018)
date : 8/29/2018
We held Health Policy 101 Session*.
At the 4th preliminary learning session, we conducted an intensive discussion after a comprehensive presentation by the internal learning team.
Health and Global Policy Institute (HGPI) offers a program entitled Health Policy 101, for people who would like to gain basic knowledge of health policy. With the program, students will be able to learn the essentials of the health policy.
In the face of changing population demographics, constant health technology advances, and rising healthcare costs, health policy in Japan is now more interesting than ever. Yet, there remains confusion around how and what exactly health policy is and few programs offer a comprehensive overview of this important topic.
To respond to this need, HGPI began the Health Policy Academy.
