As Japan copes with an aging society and increased pressures on its social security budget, a move to preventative healthcare will be crucial in extending healthy life spans and decreasing more costly interventions such as hospitalization. Japan's immunization policy, a key topic of our 2017 ACCJ-EBC white paper, will be crucial as vaccines save millions of lives and are widely recognized as one of the world's most successful and cost-effective health interventions.
What will it take for Japan to become a global leader in preventative health? Join us to find out in this can't miss event!

About WHO World Immunization Week – celebrated in the last week of April - aims to highlight the collective action needed to ensure that every person is protected from vaccine-preventable diseases. This year's theme: "Protected Together, #VaccinesWork", encourages people at every level - from donors to the general public - to go further in their efforts to increase immunization coverage for the greater good.
