Press Release

The inochi WAKAZO Project will co-host a student forum with the WHO Centre for Health Development that will provide an opportunity to learn and discuss various global health issues.

This forum will feature keynote speeches, breakout sessions, and panel discussions based on the theme of Universal Health Coverage Day 2022, “Build the world we want: A healthy future for all.”

Global health experts are scheduled to give keynote speeches and panel discussions. In the breakout sessions (viewer participation sessions), participants will deepen their discussions on health issues from 10 themes.
