About Patient and Public Involvement (PPI)

In recent years, there has been growing momentum for the participation of patients and citizens in research and development, and in the formation of healthcare policies, with the aim of building a healthcare system that takes into account the perspectives of patients and citizens, who are the beneficiaries of healthcare.

In the past, participation has mainly been carried out by those involved in patient organizations. However, due to changes in how information is disseminated with the development of the Internet and social networking services and the diversification of individual activities, patient organizations are facing challenges such as a decline in organizational participation and aging membership.

HGPI works to promote collaboration between patients, citizens, and other stakeholders that is appropriate to the current social climate, and to achieve citizen-centered health policy.
