About Health Policy Academy

Topics like Japan’s declining birthrate and aging population, the emergence of one innovative technology after another, and the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic are causing interest in healthcare and healthcare policy to grow. Starting in FY2015, HGPI has been offering a lecture series called Health Policy Academy (HPA) which provides opportunities for education covering a broad range of topics in health policy for new learners who want to know more about this field. HPA features lectures from opinion leaders from industry, Government, academia, and civil society and discussion-based study sessions with students from diverse backgrounds. To date, HPA has been attended by more than 270 people.
