[Registration Open] The Health Policy Academy the 13th Session

*Please note that this program is available in Japanese only

The Health Policy Academy (HPA) is a public lecture series for citizens who want to learn about health policy. It is offered by Health and Global Policy Institute (HGPI), a non-profit, independent think tank. Since the first session in 2015, the HPA has been attended by nearly 400 people. The course has provided content for beginners in health policy through a variety of programs, including lectures by opinion leaders from the public and private sectors, and discussions between students with diverse backgrounds.

The 13th term will be offered under the theme of “Citizenship and Health Policy .” In recent years, there have been many textbooks and courses on health policy, and it has become possible to engage in various opinion exchanges and access content online. On the other hand, health policy is diverse in perspectives among stakeholders, and consensus-building can be challenging. However, the aim of the various systems surrounding healthcare is to support our lives and health and enable us to lead a high-quality of life. At the Health Policy Academy, in line with HGPI’s mission of “Achieving citizen-centered health policy by bringing stakeholders together as an independent think-tank,” we aim to provide an opportunity for students to go beyond their daily positions and engage with health policy as individuals and consider its future direction.

Building on the curriculum renewed in the 12th term, we will offer a curriculum that incorporates more practical content. In addition to the theoretical aspects such as ethics, norms, and how to deal with evidence that form the basis of policy, we will cover practical themes such as the medical service fee schedule and healthcare delivery systems, as well as advocacy activities to convey the direction that healthcare policy should take from the perspective of citizens. Through discussions and group work with students from various backgrounds, you will have the opportunity to experience the ways of thinking necessary for actual policy formation, such as adjusting and reaching consensus among different perspectives.
