5 March 2014

WHO Kobe Centre

WHO Centre for Health Development (WHO Kobe Centre - WKC) held the first WKC Forum of the 2014 calendar year on one of its core programmatic themes: Innovations for Healthy Ageing.

More than 70 participants were in attendance to learn about the latest research in three key areas of Japanese innovation for ageing populations, including academics and students, researchers, health practitioners, local government, industry, media, and private citizens of Hyogo prefecture.

This WKC Forum followed the Global Forum on Innovations for Ageing Populations, held in Kobe in December 2013, and presented the opportunity to dive deeper into discussion on innovations in pharmaceuticals, robotics and e-health, and falls prevention.
