Global HealthPharmaceutical Regulations in Japan

Universal Health Coverage

Japan achieved universal health coverage (including both health insurance and health care) more than 50 years ago in 1961. Today the people of Japan enjoy the longest average life span worldwide, and the government of Japan1 has embraced the promotion of Universal Health Coverage as a Post 2015 United Nations Sustainable Development Goal. With the growing focus on universal health coverage, the JPMA in collaboration with IFPMA, PhRMA and EFPIA developed key guiding principles to inform the design of global UHC policies, which were shared through the joint statement, "Innovative Biopharmaceutical Industry Perspectives on Universal Health Coverage: Proposed Public Policy Principles".
