HGPI Morning Lecture “Thinking about Decision Making Processes in Global Health Policy”
date : 12/5/2012
Japan previously used its strong initiative to help stimulate the move toward the creation of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria which has drawn great attention for its multi-stakeholder approach based on public-private partnerships. Recent years have however seen an intensification of movement for further advancing global health measures based on public-private collaboration.
So who is responsible and how are policies relating to measures in the global health field originally decided? Up until now various organizations have been involved in global health policy, including the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and related organizations, and the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare. However following the 2008 Toyako G8 Summit, the private sector has begun to play a catalytic role in this, and through global cooperation there has been acceleration in policy decision making in which numerous stakeholders are involved.
The Global Health Unit at the Health and Global Policy Institute has carried out research on the global health policy decision making process since the end of last year. In this Morning Lecture, staff from HGPI provided an explanation of the key points of the decision making process for global health policy, based on the outcomes of this research project. Following this, two case examples that were actually carried out was introduced. In relation to this, Dr. Kurokawa also interjected with personal insights from his own experience, and gave a general overview of the decision making process for global health policy in Japan together with the future prospects.
