Introduction to Our Activities
Japan Consortium for Global School Health Research
The Department of Global Health serves as secretariat for the Japan Consortium for Global School Health Research. The Consortium is Japan’s first think tank whose aim is to pursue research that contributes the extension and appropriate implementation of school health for school-age children and adolescent youth in developing countries. The worldwide strategy is to put back those results into policy management in each country as well as contribute to the improvement of health in communities. Flexible concepts and approaches need to be developed, which are not constrained by stereotypes, for developing nations, so it is hoped that participants will join from a broad range of fields, including not only health science studies, but education, epidemiology, health education, parasitology, human ecology, economics, policy studies and other fields as well. Also, in order to train young researchers, information is being exchanged among members in Japan and networks strengthened with researchers in other countries.
