Tackling Three Complex and Wicked Social Issues ～Healthcare～
Tackling Three Complex and Wicked Social Issues
The social crisis caused by COVID-19 has brought to light not only the declining birthrate and aging population, but also various problems that Japanese society is facing, such as health disparities by income and region.
We would like to explore not only the creation of structural changes in the medical and healthcare industries and public systems, but also efforts to promote changes in individual awareness and the nature of mutual support so that no one is left behind in terms of physical, mental, and social wellbeing.
