(Report) 46th Breakfast Meeting
date : 12/12/2013
On the 12th December 2013 (Thursday), Health and Global Policy Institute hold its 46th Regular Breakfast Meeting.
Japan has maintained the world well-known health insurance system since inauguration of the system in 1961.
However, the current social insurance system is facing a critical turning point, due to a sharp drop in birth rate and change in the disease patterns, and advancement of medicine.
Mean while, Abe administration has proposed the expansion of medicine-related industries and distribution of the most advanced treatment across the nation as one of main pillars of growth strategy.
It is questionable whether Japanese universal public insurance system would be maintained while stimulating advanced medical treatment at the same time. If that was possible, what has been done to reform Japanese health care system?
The executive director of the HGPI, Dr. Toshio Miyata, who has worked as a physician and has experiences in basic research, clinical trial, and health policy-making, shared his view on critical issues in the related field.
