Research theme and outline

The topic of health challenges are getting common throughout the world. While issues such as low nutrition and infectious diseases still exist in low- and middle-income countries, the issues, such as lifestyle-related diseases and medical insurance system which are considered to exist only in high-income countries, are also emerging. In the field of international cooperation, the concept of global health is changing, like not only through technology transfer, but also by learning about common issues between high-income countries and low- and middle-income countries. Both sides are utilizing what they learn for mutual improvement. From the perspective of health systems, I will conduct research on mutual learning to solve problems through overseas projects.
