Takemi Program in International Health 2018-2019 – The Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health
The Takemi Program in International Health at the Harvard T. H. Chan 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 a small group of mid-career professionals from around the world. Through its activities, the program aims to advance knowledge about international health and to contribute to institutional development and improvement of national policy.
Each Takemi Fellow is responsible for a specific research project and participates in the Program’s weekly seminar. Research projects are carried out under the supervision of a carefully matched member of the University faculty and are directed toward the completion of one or two scientific papers suitable for publication or for use as teaching materials. Such projects might include an analysis of a Fellow’s experience in a health program, the preparation of case studies, the development of new health programs, or the analysis of health policies. A Harvard faculty member will serve as supervisor or collaborator in the research project of each candidate chosen.
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.
