About Global Health

As can be seen in agreements to address hunger and poverty in the international community like the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), supporting the health and medical sector has been growing in importance since the 2000s. Based on the principle of “human security,” the Government of Japan has also been devoting attention to Official Development Assistance (ODA) and foreign policies. It has conducted a number of initiatives centered on Universal Health Coverage (UHC) in the field of global health at events like the G8 Kyushu-Okinawa Summit in 2000, the G8 Hokkaido Toyako Summit in 2008, and the G7 Ise-Shima Summit in 2016. However, there are limited opportunities to discuss the ever-shifting global health agenda and human resource development initiatives, which the Global Health Project works with global partners to address.
