Japan Medical Association Public Interest Incorporated Association Symposium held under the theme “To fight against new infectious diseases – Based on the lessons of the new coronavirus”
– Calling for questions for speakers prior to the event –
The Japan Medical Association will be holding a symposium in January 2024 with the theme of “To combat new infectious diseases – based on the lessons of the new coronavirus”, and will be inviting questions from the public to the lecturers. That’s it.
We will begin recruiting from December 1st, so please feel free to send us your questions.
The Japan Medical Association recently looked back on the response to the new coronavirus infection in Japan, and said that thanks to the efforts of doctors and other medical professionals and related parties across the country, the number of deaths per capita has been lower than in other countries. In addition to reaffirming that we have achieved one of the world’s greatest achievements, such as reducing the number of infections, we will also consider and share the issues and countermeasures that have come to light, so that we can work together with the public to deal with new infectious diseases that may occur at any time in the future. In order to prepare for the pandemic, we have decided to hold the symposium “To Fight Against New Infectious Diseases – Based on the Lessons Learned from the New Coronavirus” without an audience.
At the symposium,
Takao Omagari, Director of the Center for International Infectious Diseases, National Center for Global Health and Medicine, talks about Japan’s response to the new coronavirus and future challenges. Based on the results of a visit to three European countries, Dr. Morii, Chief Researcher at Dainichi Medical Research Institute, explains Japan’s response to the coronavirus compared to other countries.
Satoshi Kamai, Executive Director of the Japan Medical Association, regarding the medical association’s efforts during the coronavirus pandemic.
In addition to each giving a lecture, we plan to have a panel discussion afterwards to discuss future issues and countermeasures. Questions will be accepted until December 15th, and a lottery will be drawn from among those who have submitted questions.
We’ll give you a Nichido-kun mascot ballpoint pen! !
