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 is to discover and develop young talent capable of becoming next-generation leaders in the global health field, through provision of a program that enables them to cooperate with leaders active at the front line of  diverse fields in order to devise and implement an action plan.
In this program, students aimed to present their own solutions on the topic of “Disaster Medical Relief Support which Responds to Community Needs”, based on the lessons learned from The Great East Japan Earthquake.
