Continuing on from last year, Health and Global Policy Institute again organized a Global Health Summer Program, co-sponsored with the Department of Global Health Policy at the University of Tokyo’s Graduate School of Medicine. The aim of the program was to discover and develop young talent capable of becoming next-generation leaders in the global health field, as they cooperate with leaders from diverse fields active at the front line to devise and implement an action plan for the mission of “Polio Eradication”.

Students from diverse disciplines with a keen interest in global health gathered from across the country, attended lectures by leaders in various fields at the forefront of global health activity, worked through intense group discussions to create effective action plans, and announced their action plans on the final day.

With their passion, and the valuable experience they gained on this program, we have great expectations of seeing program participants playing active global roles in the not so distant future.
