Global Health and Human Security
JCIE's Global Health and Human Security Program encourages Japan and other wealthy countries to translate their commitments on improving global health into concrete action. Through its international research and dialogue projects, the program seeks to develop a better understanding of the critical value of human security to global health and aims to explore ways for Japan to enhance its leadership role in global health over the long term and to build domestic and international support for such a role.
