Conference on Providing Ongoing Support to the Disaster Areas in Yamada Town, Iwate Prefecture

Conference on Providing Ongoing Support to the Disaster Areas in Yamada Town, Iwate Prefecture

On the 31 January 2013, Fred Gerber, Director of Japan support operations at the international medical support organization Project HOPE, and Kazumi Kubota, Senior Associate at the Health and Global Policy Institute, visited Iwate Prefecture.

With the mediation of HGPI, it has been decided that Project Hope will provide tangible support to Yamada town in Iwate Prefecture in the form of a donation towards the reestablishment of a private hospital. A conference was subsequently held with the hospital management to confirm the situation of the rebuilding and the structure of future support. In addition to this, opinions were also exchanged with health and welfare experts from Yamada town, including town mayor Shinitsu Sato, on how ongoing support centered on the implementation of elderly care policies should be developed.

Based on these discussions, Project HOPE reconfirmed its commitment to providing ongoing support while placing priority on responding to the views of people actually based in Yamada town.
