Who We Are

Mission

Improving access to health for everyone through developing the health system, health-related infrastructure and global health workforce.

Vision

Shape the future of global health architecture.
The current global health arena is becoming more and more complex with the emergence of new actors and new challenges in the rapidly changing world. The dynamics of the arena covers not only “eradicating” diseases, but also “coexisting” with them including preventive medicine. As a think tank, we would like to guide the world into the place providing better access to health for everyone through the creation of knowledge and solutions for overcoming the challenges.

Value

Bring solutions to global health challenges through dialogues and co-creation.
The center believes that a multi-stakeholder approach is essential in addressing diverse and complex issues affecting health outcomes. Particularly, the private sector can play a significantly important role in enhancing engagement and investment in global health. As such, the center seeks to connect multi-sectoral stakeholders and encourage them to share their knowledge and experience with each other, to collaboratively bring innovative solutions to global health challenges. The center aims to serve as a platform for global health actors to discuss solutions and act on them.

Target domains of the Center

The center currently focuses on three (interlinked) domains: 1) infectious diseases, 2) non-communicable diseases and aging society, and 3) health systems, which are given a prominent emphasis in global agenda and are seen as the areas where the private sector could make significant contributions. The center explores how issues in these domains can be solved by emerging non-medical technologies – especially, digital technologies including artificial intelligence/machine learning, block chain and drones.
