TOP > RESEARCH > Project


As a member of the international community, Japan has consistently aimed to contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Thus, in this project, we aim to study the country’s strategic and effective involvement in the field of global health, focused on the eradication of infectious diseases, including COVID-19 and the three major infectious diseases (HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria).

Specifically, we aim to achieve the following objectives:

  1. Analyze the strategies and activities of international organizations, such as the Global Fund (GF) and the World Health Organization (WHO), and make recommendations on the Japanese government’s response to the governance meetings of these organizations;
  2. Analyze the current situation and present proposals on how Japan can effectively and strategically contribute to and cooperate with international organizations and groups focused on infectious diseases; and
  3. Study how Japan can become more involved in promoting the international deployment of Japanese products and technologies.
