(Upcoming Event) Seminar “Solution for Global Health Issues -Public and Private Partnership-“
*Application form is the bottom.

In recent years, there has been rapid economic growth in some developing countries which is seen as a new market opportunity for businesses, however, these countries are disadvantaged by their limited access to medical resources. In particular they are significantly handicapped by the three major infectious diseases i.e. HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, Malaria, and NTD (Neglected Tropical Diseases).
As public funding is limited, an innovative business model called “Public-Private-Partnership”(PPP) plays an important role in solving global health issues in developing countries. PPP is a government service or private business venture which is funded and operated through a partnership of government and one or more private sector companies.
In the first session of the current sequential seminars, we would like to hold discussion about why PPP has drawn great attention especially in the global health field. By introducing examples of PPP by The Global Health Innovative Technology Fund (GHIT Fund,) which aims to solve global health issues, we would also like to discuss how government and private sector companies can cooperate and maximize the partnership. The GHIT Fund is a non-profit organization aimed at promoting the discovery and development of new health technologies including drugs, vaccines and diagnostics for infectious diseases prevalent in developing counties.The first partnership  of its kind in Japan, the GHIT Fund is a PPP established by the Government of Japan,  a consortium of Japanese pharmaceutical companies and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in 2012. Through the session, we would like to discuss and explore sustainable ways of contributing to global health solutions with speakers and audience participation.
We welcome business persons, researchers who aim to contribute to medical drug development for developing countries, people from NGO, NPO public administrations, international organizations, students and so on.
