The Takemi Program in International Health at the Harvard School of Public Health is an interdisciplinary research program that focuses on the problems of mobilizing, allocating, and maintaining limited resources to improve health. To address these issues, the program brings together at Harvard a small group of Takemi Fellows, mid-career professionals from around the world, with particular emphasis on fellows from developing countries.
Through its activities, the program aims to advance knowledge about international health and to contribute to institutional development and improvement of national policy.
The program was established in 1983 and is named after Dr. Taro Takemi, the distinguished physician-scientist who served for more than 25 years as the president of the Japan Medical Association.
The program recently held its 30th Anniversary Symposium Celebration (on October 11 & 12, 2013). A Summary Report on the Symposium is now available. A video produced in conjunction with the event can be viewed here. Takemi Program 30th Anniversary Video:
