Japan is well known for having a super-aged society. Due to the proportion of elderly, Japan’s healthcare and pharmaceutical markets have one of the world’s highest per capita expenditures. Healthcare spends in 2020 stood at 42.2 trillion yen, mainly on hospitalisation and out-of-hospital care.
We supported Japan’s COVID-19 containment strategy through the supply of diagnostics products to a variety of stakeholders, including local governments, hospitals, public health institutes, sports and entertainment events organisers.
Yumeiro Shoes Project: Special Shoes for Children
To uplift the lives of children with intractable diseases, we launched a new initiative, named Yumeiro (meaning “dreamy colours”) Shoes Project to encourage children undergoing treatment and give them hope for the future. This project gave young patients the opportunity to design original shoes for themselves on paper, which were then replicated onto actual shoes.
