Mission: The development of public health, healthcare, and welfare systems capable of responding to the low birthrate and rapidly aging population is an urgent issue in Japan. In addition, there are strong calls for the building of a society that ensures lifelong health and safety. In order to promote administrative health, labor, and welfare policies in Japan relating to public health, healthcare, and welfare, the NIPH implements training for local government employees, etc. and related surveys and research. The NIPH engages in various other activities as well, including making policy proposals to the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare and providing scientific evidence for the promotion of policies; the supply of health-related information to local governments and the public. Through these activities, the NIPH contributes to the improvement of public health in Japan.
