About Future of the Health Care System

Japan’s healthcare system faces changing circumstances due to factors like a shrinking working-age population, which supports the healthcare system; an increase in public healthcare demand due to population aging and a changing national disease profile; global warming; and the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. While learning from the past, it is important we consider policies and measures needed to maintain a resilient, high quality, and sustainable healthcare system moving forward. The Future of the Health Care System Project will collaborate with stakeholders from industry, Government, academia, and civil society to propose the healthcare policies needed in the Japan of tomorrow.
