Strengthen Community Health Capacity

Community Health Grant Programs

Contributing to Improve Health Services

We provide grant programs for research and awareness-raising activities that can contribute to promoting primary health care, building the capacity of nursing professionals and improving health systems.

Grant for Research Activities

Medical, nursing and long-term care needs in Japan are changing with the aging population and declining birthrate. This grant supports innovative research and practical surveys on the shift from a hospital treatment-oriented system to a more comprehensive medical support system based on the idea of community health.

Grant for Awareness-raising Activities

With the aging of society, medical and nursing care needs are changing. There is a shift from a hospital-based medical care system to a community-based health care system that provides comprehensive support including livelihood support. This grant supports activities to inform local residents about home health care and help them to understand it properly, with the aim of promoting community health.
