About Us


about us


We are performing various kinds of support in order to improve health care in developing countries. There are a number of countries in the world where people in poverty cannot receive adequate health care, where pregnant women cannot access safe pregnancy and childbirth, and where people die young due to preventable or treatable infectious diseases. We have been assisting developing countries mainly in the fields of maternal and child health, infectious disease control, and health systems strengthening in order to protect the people from life-threatening diseases.

Since founding in 1986 we have worked as a leading Japanese international cooperation agency in the health sector in cooperation with the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and the World Health Organization (WHO).   We have provided international cooperation through dispatching experts to technical cooperation projects in developing countries, training health personnel domestically and abroad, and conducting health research. In addition, we have been dispatching medical relief teams in many parts of the world in response to natural disaster and pandemic of communicable disease.

We aim for all people in countries, without disparity, to live healthy lives.   Therefore, we at the Bureau of International Health Cooperation, under the motto of "Care, Commitment and Communication for a Healthier World", are promoting high-quality international cooperation that combines strategy and dignity.
