Collaboration/cooperation with external institutions To Promote Data Sharing in the World

To Promote Data Sharing in the World

A diverse range of cooperative initiatives is essential for undertaking medical research within and outside Japan, and data sharing is one example of such efforts. AMED is also proactive in performing data sharing.

Coping with the Zika Epidemic

The Zika, an infectious disease which has spread across a wide area of Central and South America since around 2015, originated from a limited region in Africa about 60 years ago. The World Health Organization (WHO) declared the Zika epidemic a Public Health Emergency of International Concern on February 1, 2016.

In response to this situation, the world's governments, funding agencies, and journals in which research results are published promptly issued the Statement on Data Sharing in Public Health Emergencies. AMED is also a signatory to the statement.
