JC-GSHR became a partner organization of the Osaka University UNESCO Chair “Global Health and Education.” We are building a network of experts on school health in Asia. Professor Jun Kobayashi, the chairman of JC-GSHR, was appointed as a member of the steering committee for the Osaka University UNESCO Chair. The kick-off symposium for the Osaka University UNESCO Chair was held on May 10th, 2019, at the Suita campus of Osaka University where many of the JC-GSHR members, including Professor Kobayashi, attended.
JC-GSHR/Osaka University UNESCO Chair are conducting a joint research project on school health in Asian countries. We have so far conducted two international workshops on May 10th~11th and September 16th, 2019 in Osaka, inviting experts from the Philippines, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Nepal, Korea, China, and Japan. At the workshops, we shared information on school health policies and implementations from each country, and discussed the differences and similarities in their approaches.
This research is on-going through the collaboration of JC-GSHR members and their counterparts in each country.
