About Health Information

In today’s age of active information dissemination by individuals, the importance of disseminating accurate health and medical information and raising public awareness is becoming even more important.

However, appropriate information dissemination from medical-related professional organizations and industries is restricted under legal regulations, and government dissemination has not been able to keep up with the constantly changing information updates and dissemination.

The concept of “determinants of health by information,” in which health is influenced by the information obtained and believed, has also emerged, which became more evident with the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) pandemic.

HGPI will not only discuss practical issues such as the quality of health and medical information and data infrastructure, but will also incorporate discussion about what is reliable and trustworthy information from a historical and philosophical perspective, touching on human nature, to create opportunities to widely communicate the ideal information society that can be created by both senders and receivers.
