Executive Committee on Global Health and Human Security

The Executive Committee on Global Health and Human Security is a unique public-private platform that facilitates the Japanese government’s policymaking on global health and public-private collaboration in that field. Under the chairmanship of Professor Keizo Takemi, the committee holds quarterly meetings to provide a venue for unofficial exchanges of views and information sharing among government ministries, academia, private companies, and civil society organizations in Japan. Global health experts from Japan and overseas are invited to speak at the meetings to offer their knowledge and advice.

The committee was initially launched in 2007 as the Working Group on Challenges in Global Health and Japan's Contributions to prepare policy recommendations for the G8 Hokkaido Toyako Summit the following year. The committee is an integral part of the Global Health and Human Security Program of JCIE, which manages all aspects of the committee’s work.
