What role can Japan play in global health within the context of COVID-19 pandemic?
In the midst of the pandemic, the Government of Japan will be renewing its 5-year global health strategy. The Japan CSO Network on Global Health had an opportunity to contribute to the consultation and continues to have ongoing dialogue with the government on the strategy with a focus on leaving no one behind.
In this international consultation, we invited civil society groups from Vietnam, Ghana, and India. We hope to hear about how Japan’s global health strategy could affect the most vulnerable populations and their own recommendations vis-a-vis the next strategy.
We hope this international consultation will contribute to crafting a clear vision of Japan’s role on global health.
Please join us for this dynamic exchange.
There will be simultaneous interpretation available in Japanese and English
