We held the Health Policy 101/Health Policy Academy(HPA) Session*.
At the 1st preliminary learning session, we conducted an intensive discussion after a comprehensive presentation by the internal learning team.
“Health Policy 101” is a program offered by the Health and Global Policy Institute(HGPI) for those interested in the opportunity of gaining a basic knowledge of Japan’s health policy essentials. In the face of shifting demographics, constant advances in technology, and rising healthcare costs, interest in Japan’s healthcare system and health policies is growing faster than ever before.
There nonetheless remains confusion surrounding the exact nature of health policy in Japan, and programs offering a clear, comprehensive overview of this important topic remain limited. In response to this need, HGPI established HPA, offering a total of six lectures and five study sessions over the course of six months.
