Created in 2015 by Health and Global Policy Institute (HGPI), Japan Health Policy NOW (JHPN) is the only platform in the world to offer bilingual information relating to Japanese health policies – in English and Japanese.

Japan is one of the most rapidly ageing societies in the world. As such, Japan’s health policies are drawing worldwide attention. JHPN was established by the Health and Global Policy Institute (HGPI) in September 2015. HGPI currently operates the website with the purpose of broadcasting information about Japan’s health policies.

JHPN delivers the latest information on the following topics:

  • Basic and background information on Japan’s health policies
  • Explanations of Japan’s periodic health policy agenda
  • Literature relating to Japan’s health policies (papers, books, reports, etc.)

Further details are can be found on the JHPN’s website:
