US-Japan Global Health Cooperation Dialogue focuses on UHC, aging

The Japan Center for International Exchange (JCIE) and the National Academy of Medicine (NAM) co-hosted the Fourth US-Japan Global Health Cooperation Dialogue at the National Academy of Sciences in the United States on June 17, 2022.

The project was originally launched following the inauguration of former US President Trump in 2017 to reinforce the importance of US-Japan cooperation in global health. Senior officials from Japan and the US attended the meeting and discussed how the two countries could work together to strengthen global health and security. There was also a strong focus on supporting sustainable universal health coverage (UHC) and aging.

The meeting came at a time when Japan is actively preparing to host the G7 Summit next year, where global health is expected to be at the center of discussion.
