Global Health, the G8, and TICAD IV

Information, Events, and Resources

The creation of a global facility on communicable diseases was first endorsed by the world’s leaders at the 2000 G8 Summit in Okinawa and Kyushu, Japan, and this was made reality with the launch of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria in 2002. In 2008, the G8 Summit returns to Japan for the first time since 2000 and, along with climate change, global health and African development are again high on the summit agenda. The July summit is preceded by the Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD IV), which takes place every five years, and which will feed into the G8 discussions.

JCIE is involved in several initiatives related to the G8 and global health—including the Friends of the Global Fund, Japan (FGFJ), and a major study on “Challenges in Global Health and Japan’s Contributions.” In addition to these, the following lists up key information on official and nongovernmental initiatives being undertaken across Japan in the area of global health in the lead up to the G8 and TICAD meetings.
