Tropical medicine generally concerns developing countries and the problems of community health and disease. In the class, we also cover the basic concepts of public health, policies and measures. In the process of “health transition”, many developing countries have an aging population with a growing number of patients exhibiting heart/cerebrovascular disease and malignant tumors, while traditional infectious diseases are yet to be overcome. In Japan, on the other hand, deaths from infectious diseases have declined, while non-infectious diseases such as heart/cerebrovascular diseases and malignant tumors account for 60% of deaths. We study Japan’s past public health policies and current and future public health measures so as to draw lessons for application to developing countries.
