Strategies to Promote the International Private Sector’s Contribution to Global Health Beyond an “Established” Community

Koshiba, Michikazu

Our prioritized areas are i) re-mapping private companies that make a contribution to global health to create a new evaluation tool to promote investment from the private sector; ii) advocating the reform of UN procurement and public procurement mechanisms in emerging countries to Japanese and other private companies, and; iii) promoting regulatory harmonization on medical devices/equipment beyond borders and building capacity for regulators and policymakers in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Of these focus areas, we are commencing specific projects to explore the first two items. In this paper, we share our proposed solution to global health issues from the perspective of the effective promotion of Public Private Partnerships (PPPs).

Mitsubishi UFJ Research and Consulting (MURC) is a comprehensive think tank/consulting arm of the Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group (the MUFG Group, a universal banking group that represents Japan) and based in the three major cities in Japan. MURC established the “Center on Global Health Architecture” in 2017 and organized a public private collaborative action-oriented research meeting on global health issues. We aim to promote relationships among stakeholders, “break down silos,” and take an interdisciplinary approach to create new and innovative projects.
